For this anything goes Christmas challenge and the mood board posted for inspiration, found this little die cut bird. After diecutting cutting him off the branch I decided upon a SimonSaysStamp Forest Border embossing folder for my background and a landing place for the bird. The panel was embossed on navy cardstock, swiped with white pigment ink, edges ink blended with Black Soot Distress ink and a little white splatter. The snow hills are also SSS and sentiment is from Artful Inkables Peaceful Wishes stamp set.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

Beautiful card! I like how calm and peaceful it is.
Thanks so much Lisa.
Your blue and white is wonderful. Adding the black shading then the bird for contrast is super pleasing to the eye.
Thanks, Bonnie, I wasn’t sure if I liked it at first and kept adding more white pigment ink over the trees to help them stand out more. I appreciate your support.
Gayle, this is a beautiful card and goes so wonderfully with the mood board. I agree with Bonnie on the dark shading around the edges.
Thanks, Golda, I was hoping that extra shading would show a little dimension. I appreciate you stopping in.
Oh Gayle, this is so beautiful and peaceful. I agree with the shading around the edges. I think blue and white Christmas cards are so peaceful.
Thanks, Gerry, I was stumped for a while and not sure if the bird is best size but I was happy with the finished card.
