A Christmas Robin

Last week I was visiting my Simon teamie Debby's blog and she had the most adorable card using this little guy. I had completely forgotten about him - he's from a set from 2010!  So I pulled him out today and made a tag for Christmas:


supplies: Sea Glass, dark brown, and red glitter cardstock, Penny Black Jolly Friends and Joyous clear stamp sets, and Snowflake Trio die, Memory Box grapevine wreath, Stitched Tag die, snowflake embossing folder, glue pen and glitter, red and white striped twine

After I colored and fussy-cut the robin, I cut a stitched tag and then stamped my sentiment.  Next I embossed it, then used my glue pen to add glitter to the embossed snowflakes and his hat, and then added everything else.  

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday!  I'll see you again in a couple of days.........

Lin what a beautiful tag! very sibgel detail is perfect--especially your fussy cutting. For me it is more like fussy amputation so I am very impressed!
