Since I wake up at 4:00 am each morning to bring my hubby to work, I had plenty of time to start on today's challenge when I got home.
When I saw the challenge, I thought chipboard....I don't have any. Surprise, Surprise I found a package of some awesome chipboard pieces...including these birds. I have things in my craft cupboards that I did not even know I had. LOL!
I painted my birds with acrylic and metallic paints in a bright color so they would pop off the card.

Chris, It is like Christmas, isn't it? So fun to go looking around for things in our craft rooms. This is by far the prettiest Christmas card I've seen yet. So rich and great dimension. Love the fancy bow paired with the burlap and the birds are colored perfectly.

LOL - I'm sure we all have things in our craft cupboards we didn't know were there. I'm glad you found such pretty birds - and they go so well with the paper. Nice to see it in action :D, I just got the email about it earlier.
