An Icy Bath

The just inklined cd that I used for this card is so packed with great images it's easy to miss them, I saw this image on Pauline's blog.I loved her gorgeous Christmas card, well I adore all her creations . I love Robbins even though I'm scared of them,wether it's on cards or in real life. We have a bird bath in the garden that the robins visit. Only one at a time though, in real life 3 would never bathe together they are such dominant little birds.
The lovely denim effect paper is from Hot off the press,issue 49 of creative cardmaking mag, as is the sentiment. I've decoupaged the image using pinflair and added German Glitter glass for a really frosty/snowy effect.

challenges entered :

Tuesday Alchemy : Winter Wonder
Tip Top : luscious layers
cd Sunday : for ever in blue jeans ( I used denim effect paper)
creative inspiration : anything goes
glitter and sparkle : must have a sentiment
chocolate,coffee and cards : for the birds

still mighty cold here, it was nice a bright yesterday,trying to snow again this morning but nothing to worry about....roll on Spring....saying that it's staying lighter in the afternoon /evening now , so that's a blessing.
stay warm and safe. janex
