Cute Robin

Hi Folks
I have finally managed to find some time to get on my laptop today.  Hope you all had a lovely christmas and New Year.  I have spent today putting away the christmas decorations and cleaning up.  I love having the tree and decorations up but am always glad when they go away again.  

Today I thought I would share another of my last minute christmas makes.

The robin has been created using the X Cut Paisley Leaves nesting die.  I used three different sizes of the die for each of the part of the robin.  I cut the pieces out of brown card and the breast part out of glitter card.  The sentiment is one from my stash and I used some gold card for the matting and a black pearl for the eye.  The beak was added with a promarker.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really do appreciate all your comments and the support that you give me.

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

Super cute idea to use the paisley dies to make a bird! I like how the sentiment is slightly wavy to indicate the bird being in flight also! Love it! Thanks for sharing it with us at CHNC Extra! :)
