Christmas Robin

Hi all, I am just a tad late today.  Started the day slowly with a nice walk with our dog.....then it seemed to get busier and busier.  Just finished organising an excited husband to fly to Sydney to watch his favourite Rugby League team Manly in the Grand Final this coming Sunday.  This now means there is an excited Mum down in Newcastle that will be keen to catch up with her son for the weekend.  Possibly a not so excited sister that has to spend time with both brother and Mum as they will be staying with her.  :-) and......she will be accompanying her brother to the Grand Final and she doesn't go for either team. lol

Okay, time to get on to my card.  A little bit more christmas.  I was so keen to use this beautiful holly paper.  I do like holly at Christmas time.
I started with a white card then a layer of red cardstock, then this lovely patterned paper.  The sentiment is a gold rub on.  I cut the image out with my new oval Spellbinder die.  I have coloured this cute Robin image with my Copic pens and added a touch of Kindy Glitz to the branches.  Finished with the wonderful red organza ribbon.

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