Cozy Little Chickadees for CSAYL

Good morning friends, it is Friday and time for a new challenge at Christmas Stampin All Year Long.

Meljen's Designs :: Digital Stamps by Melissa Jenkins 
This week our sponsor is Meljen's Designs and she is offering 4 non-colored digi images for the winner.  For my card I am using the sweet Cozy Little Chickadees from our sponsor.  I just love these cute little love birds and enjoyed coloring them up.
I printed the image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with Copics and Promarkers.  I cut the image out with a Spellbinder's Classic Oval and lightly sponged SU Bashful Blue ink around the edges while it was still in the die.  I added some Liquid Applique to the little snow patches on the branch and also to the dots around the image, let it dry overnight and heated it with my heat gun so it would puff up (love it).  The sentiment is from MFT's Christmas Ornaments set.  I curved the sentiment while on the block so it would fit the oval.  I matted it with a Scalloped Oval mat of SU Real Red CS. The DSP is from Pebbles Welcome Christmas 6x6 pad. The mats are SU Basic Black and the card base is SU Whisper White.

Now hop on over to the CSAYL blog and check out the wonderful creations by my fellow Design Team members.  I hope you will join us this week.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
