Pick Three Challenge Card......Christmas Birds

I am so happy this card, thanks to Denise and her Pick Three challenge over at Stamping Vacation.

I have used a white prefolded white lined card for the base card. Then I added a square of Print Blocks 'Christmas Trees on Green' paper. I have added touches of glitter to the baubles and the stars on the tree. Then added two strips of double sided tape on the side which I sprinkled with red glitter. Finished with the lovely vertical Merry Christmas sticker. The topper I cut using my Octagon nestabilities. The image I received in our latest Craftmad image swap and is Inkadinkadoo 'Best Friends'. Isn't it too cute. I have coloured it with my watercolour pencils and aqua pen and added hints of glitter.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges.
