A little Christmas robin on a miserable day

 

I saw a little robin in my garden a couple of days ago. Last year we had one nest in our garden shed and it was really exciting waiting for the babies to hatch. They haven’t nested in the shed this year though which is a pity. So I decided to make a card with this lovely Gatepost Robin image available from Just Inklined.

09-08.12

I have coloured my digi with my Copics and added lashings of Stickles!!

09-08.12a

I have added Glossy Accents to the holly berries for some fabulous dimensional shine – they look great with this added over the top.

Gorgeous card Marcea. I love the little robin and all the sparkle.
I think the thunder storms scared away all the birds away from our garden today. Even the kids were hiding behind the sofa!

This is absolutely beautiful. So traditional and I love the green backing you have used as it isn't the typical dark Christmas green. The image is gorgeous and reminds me of the robins we get each year in our garden.
