Elaine Cox - Christmas Bird

Here is a Christmas card I have made. I have used a Sweet Pea Stamps image called "Christmas Bird" by Elaine Cox. It is available as a digital stamp and as a rubber stamp set (the stamp set comes with the larger image and a smaller image to use on inserts/envelopes/tags etc).
I have used the digital stamp and have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens and highlighted areas with Pan Pastels, white gel pen and Stickles glitter glue.  I have inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Chipped Sapphire distress ink.
The backing papers are from Bearly Mine Designs Winter Swirls.  I have finished the card off with some die-cut snowflakes and trees with Stickles added for sparkle and shine, tissue paper die-cut flowers with square brad centres and a sentiment from my Perfect Companions Christmas CD.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
