Here's another inspiration card from me. This time I'm using a non-Christmas stamp set by one of our sponsors - Chocolate Baroque - called A Little Bird Told Me. Inspired by my original CASE card, I've got the bird on a branch as my central focal image. Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers create the wintery background with snowflakes from Chocolate Baroque's Family Christmas stamp sheet, embossed in white. I've added sequins and bling for that inescapable festive sparkle.
The diecut circle reveals a greeting from Chocolate Baroque's Christmas Magic set, stamped with Versafine Deep Lagoon. To soften the look, I added some sheer white ribbon tied in a simple knot. The entire piece is mounted on foam before adhering on the card base.
I coloured the bird with Faber-Castell Polychromos ... and added a dot of Glossy Accent to his eye. I should have waited for it to dry before taking the photo! I assure you he is not suffering from an eye infection!
And here is the greeting. Why am I showing you this? Hint.. hint...

CHNC #236: Add A Sentiment
