Christmas robin

Hello Everyone, 
Well, I'm absolutely full of cold and have so much to do....but don't feel like doing any of it!! So here is a card I made last week for the Christmas Challenge at Craft Creations.

This is an 8" easel card. The decoupage, is a die cut sheet from Craft Creations called Robin on Flower Pot.
The backing papers are also from Craft Creations, 'snowflakes on blue' and 'random pale blue'. 
I've used Marianne creatables die for the tree, fence and snowflakes, and my spellbinders edgeability die for the border.
I finished off with a bit of ribbon from my stash and some pearls.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me and for all your lovely comments.

Lovely card Lorraine. You may have inspired me as I've been asked to do an easel Christmas card for Mum and Dad. But soppy.... Not sure how I'm going to achieve that but I love your layout.
