Two For One - Joy To The World

I combined two challenges for my card , Freshly Made Sketches and Merry Monday Challenge (use a bird on your Christmas card).  Click on the challenge names to go to their blog and check out the challenges. 

I was looking through my stamps trying to find a Chirstmas bird stamp when I found this cute little chick from Stampendous that I had for some time and had never used it. I inked her up in Mememto Black and stamped her on some Image Plus White CS and added a little color with Promarkers. I paper-pieced the letters and typed "to the world" on my computer and cut it out with a MFT Fishtail Flag Stax die-namic. I added a SU red brad to the banner, shaped it a little and adhered it with some dimensionals in a couple of places.  The ovals are cut with Spellbinders. The Real Red panel was embossed with a Sizzix EF.  The paper is from Pebbles Welcome Christmas pad and SU Basic Black CS for the mats. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Comments are greatly appreciated.

ETA:  Yay, my card was an Honorable Mention for the Merry   Monday challenge.
