Sketch Saturday

I decided to use the sketch over at Sketch Saturday for a Christmas card - my second so far this year - that coming  from one whose New Year's Resolution was to make one per week. That only leaves me about 32 
to catch up (lol).
The card is Bazzill and the pale bule one from Papermania which I stamped randomly with one of Inkadinkado's winter birds using a Colour box ink called Orchid (can't say I've ever seen a blue Orchid!!)
Anya is coloured with Copics using the watercolour technique to keep it soft and gentle. The beige and blue backing papers are both run through the 'bug' using the snowflakes folder and the snowflakes cut with an EK Success punch. The flowers are some of last year's leftovers and the sentiment is an ancient one from Lakelnd Plastics.

Image  - The Greeting Farm's Anya & Inkadinkado - Winter birds
Medium - Copic Markers, Colour Box inks
Papers - Bazzill cs and Papermania ?
Tools - EK Success snowflake and corner rounder  :  Cuttlebug embossing folder - Snowflakes
Embellishments - Flowers, brad & pearls from stash
