Merry Christmas!

Hello everyone!
Happy Saturday!

Today, I am sharing with you a vintage style Christmas card.
I expressed the birds and branches like dessin with pencils.

To create this card, I 1) Stamped the main image using a cling winter birds stamp from Stampendous and memento tuxedo black ink on a watercolor paper. 2) Drew light and shade using pencils. 3) Stamped the sentiment using a holiday petal and leaves stamp set from Hero arts and colored with color pencils. 4) Colored the background with Distress inks using water brush and brushed the snow part with wink of stella. 5) The pine needles express with glitter glue. 7) Mounted all elements as shown to a top fold card using double-sided tape.

I'm entering my card these challenges ;

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
God bless you all!
Happy crafting!
