Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge

It's time for another challenge over at Isabella's Sketchbook and this week we want to see some 3D on your project, whether that's decoupage or simply mounted onto foam pads.

For my card, which I hasten to add is my first Christmas card of the year ! , I used the Festive Bird. I printed it twice and then shaded one completelly with ProMarkers and just shaded the ribbon from the second one. I then cut them both out and I mounted the ribbon onto the bird. I cut a frame using Labels 8 Nestabilities and the background piece of the frame has had Bundled Sage DI blended over it and then I stamped with the same ink using the swirl from the Baroque Motifs set by Stampin' Up.

The background paper is Basic Grey and the border punch is a Martha Stewart. The Poinsettia flowers are a Quickutz die and I've cut them from some more Basic Grey paper.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Just one more thing to add if you don't have any Isabella images, then don't miss out as today there is sale on all images !

I hope you are able to join in with us this week and I look forward to visiting you all !
