bitten by the bug2

happy monday! this week its one of my favorite designers our lovely and super uber talented crafty  jayne who has chosen our challenge. use a bird and branch from any cartridge. if you havent yet, be sure to pop on over to the BBTB2 blog and check out the rest of the dts awesome samples. they ROCK big time as always!
im still in winter/christmas making mode so as long as i am i figure i'll get ahead on this years christmas stuff.
im entering this into a couple of challenges:

mycraftspot~winter
scrappympmstamps~tic tac toe
the sisterhoodofcrafters~winter
divasbydesign~anything goes
DL.ART~linky party anything goes

for this card i used winter woodland for the cuts (bird, branches and snowflake)
i added a doily and rhinestones and used my viva decor pearl pens for the berries. i used some chunky glitter on the snowflake. i also sanded the branch paper to give it a touch of snow look.

thanks so much for visiting me today, your sweet words always make me smile thank you for that :)
have a happy crafty rest of day :) xxxshelly
