Season's Tweetings - The Merry Christmas Challenge for September 2018

Hi Everyone!
This is the first time that I am posting as part of The Merry Christmas Challenge blog!
It is great that I get to use all my Christmas crafty items at least once a month!
Your projects can be cards, tags, scrapbook layouts, wreaths or other Christmas projects.

So here is my latest Christmas card:

I have used Chickadee in Barberry from the lovely Marcella at Power Poppy. I have digitally printed the stamp on to X-Press It Blending Card and then used my Silhouette Cameo to fussy cut it.
I have used the following Copics:
  • Chickadee - E40, E43, E23, E37, W1, W3, W5, W7, Copic multiliner, pitch black Spica pen, white gel pen
  • Berries - R14, R17
  • Leaves - YG91, G82, YG99
  • Branches - E74, E77
  • Snow - C1, BV000, colourless blender, clear Spica pen
  • Background - BG000, BG02

Here is a close up of the colouring:

I have adhered the coloured Chickadee to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.
The sentiment and musical notes are from Tweet Tidings again from Power Poppy. I stamped them using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and my MISTI!

Of course, I need to give a shout out to the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder. Also a shout out to Amy Shulke at Vanilla Arts - her Red Bird class is awesome!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
