Things that fly and Sketch & Colour Combo

The challenge over at Bah! Humbug! this week is "things that fly" and over at Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club it's a sketch and colour combo with the theme of blue and pink.  I thought I would combine the two into one card.

The DCD challenge provided a card sketch so I have followed this by taking a 5x7 card and covering it with light blue paper onto which I have watermark stamped an ornate snowflake from a SU stamp set.  I then cut two strips of darker blue card and used my MS embossing snowflake punch to give a decorative edge on both pieces.  The image is a digistamp called 4 calling birds by Bekki but I don't have the link to her blog unfortunately.  The birds were coloured in using Promarkers.  The sentiment was printed and embossed in blue e/p.  The card candy was punched out and then embossed on a mouse mat to get the domed shape and the flower is made using my Xcut embossing Botanical punch.

Thanks for stopping by.
