CASE Study #17

This month at CASE Study, our muse is the talented Nina Brackett.  Here is the lovely card she made for us to CASE:


She used as her background some lovely Webster's Pages.  I have a few sets, but have been so intimidated by their gorgeousness that I've used very few of them.  When I saw Nina's card, I figured it was now or never!  So here is my take on her card:


I chose a petite paper from Webster's Waiting for Santa pack, and added a birdhouse pieced from another red script paper from the same pack and parchment paper.  To that I added a holly sticker and hung it from a piece of crochet lace, topped with a red satin ribbon and a white ribbon rose, and finished by stamping my sentiment. 

Supplies: red and cream parchment cardstock, Webster's Pages Waiting for Santa Petite Papers pack, Hero Arts CL251 SparkleClear Birdhouse Tag, CL111 Hand Drawn Christmas (sentiment), CH231 Lace Ribbon, Versamark onyx black ink, clear embossing powder, red satin ribbon, cream ribbon rose, unknown holly sticker 

And since I like how my bow turned out, I'm also entering this into the Wee Memories challenge: Bowtiful Ribbon.
