Christmas Crafting with a little Robin

How close are we to Christmas? Don't worry i am not going to make you all feel worse lol.............

This month i have been asked to be a Guest Designer over at the Christmas Crafting blog...........thanks so much guys i really do enjoy making cards for Christmas..........

 The theme for this months challenge is all about 'Robins'..........that lovely red-breasted bird we all associated with the winter months and Christmas.......
A great prize for the winner also....so many thanks to the sponsor.

I have gone all traditional for this and i printed off in glorious colour a beautiful snowy scene with a picture of a robin. I mounted this onto a red card. I have added some gorgeous white silk ribbon, red silk ribbon which are from the fabulous Wild Orchid Crafts and then made a bow from some gorgeous green fabric feel ribbon i won from guys over at TOMIC. The gorgeous red roses again are from Wild Orchid Crafts and i have used some red German glass glitter on them. The white poppies and the tiny red rosebuds are also from Wild Orchid Crafts. The little spray of berries in the top corner are again part of the prize i won over at TOMIC.
Around this edges i have added some more red German glass glitter from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Hope you enjoy this and thanks again to the DT over at Christmas Crafting for letting me be a GDT for the month of October.
