Not What I Had Planned

It's time for another Christmas card. It feels like it's been a while since I
made one. I was wanting to play along with the challenge at Merry Monday 
to use skis, skates or a sled on your card, but I didn't have any. So, I took to
the internet and found a cute digi image of a bird skating.

My first thought was to do something with a country feel to it but when I
saw this cute bird I changed my direction. Even thought he's not what I had planned
I think he's adorable. 
The 'snowflakes' are white sequins.

I am also submitting this to Christmas Card Challenges
Their challenge is to use embellishments. 

card stock: whisper white, cherry cobbler, basic black
stamp set: more merry messages
digi image:
blendabilities: cherry cobbler, old olive, daffodil delight, pumpkin pie
ink: memento black
embellishments: cherry cobbler baker's twine, white sequins (craft medley)

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
