Tis the Season

This is a little Christmas card that I have made just for fun.  The idea came from a card on the Lawn Fawn blog, but my card ended up looking quite different.


The cute little robins come from the Clearly Besotted Rockin' Robin stamp and die set along with the sentiment.  My white rectangles have been cut with my favourite Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Clearly Besotted Challenge 14 - Christmas
Less is More Week 194 - Little Creatures
CHNC Challenge Extra for October - Anything Christmas Goes
