MMM #25 - Winter Foliage

Yes, yes and yes - back on familar ground this week with the MAKE my MONDAY challenge.  Suzi B's next Christmas challenge is:

Winter / Christmas Foliage
Holly, Ivy, Snowflakes, Pointsettas - the list is endless just follow a Christmas theme and include some foliage!
I have gone the traditional route and decided to work with holly and mistletoe.  My foliage stamps are from a Papermania plate of clear stamps, I have stamed in Versafine and then coloured with distress inks and water.   These were then painstakingly cut out - I find this quite relaxing!
My Tunisia Bird Cage LR0147 from Marianne Design has been cut using gold mirrir card.  I sanded this down to take off the glare and show the white.  The bird is from a PaperArtsy plate of stamps which I have embossed with claret and gold embossing powder to make it look like a robin.  Machine stitching was added around the Marianne Design Let it Snow papers.  Sentiment and ribbon added.

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



I have enjoyed making this card ...its one of my favourites to date.  Hope it helps inspire you to play along with us at Make My Monday - I have to say that I love being on this particular design team...thanks ladies!
