WHIMSY STAMPS CREATION - Winter is for the Birds!!

Hi everyone, today is my day to share a creation on the WHIMSY STAMPS BLOG.   Anyone else out there feel like they are stuck in a never ending winter season?!?  We have had snow on and off since October and we are predicted to get more today along with another spell of bitter cold - not usual for this area.

Winter was the inspiration for my card today, which features this adorable digi "Alannah" from StampArt Design by Kathryne available at Whimsy Stamps Store.  I colored this lovely image with my Copics and then cut out with a die from my stash (I think it's a Top Dog Die).  I added Aleene's True Snow on the bottom as well as some Stickles in various places.  I found this DP from Echo Park that I think works great with the image and this sentiment from My Craft Spot, which is cut with Cart us die, that fits perfectly, especially because at this point, I am thinking that winter is for the birds!!   Die cut shapes in the corners are cut with Lifestyle Crafts dies.   Finally I added pearl/bling flourishes to round out the card.  I sure hope you like it!!
