Meeerrrry Christmas

Well I do enjoy a glass of red so after some scrounging through my stamps and stash I found some bits to make this Christmas card for the Christmas Kickstart challenge #29  - Christmas Cheer - AKA - Alcohol!!!!
From my stash I found this 'Crazy Bird' already stamped, coloured and fussy cut also with her Christmas hat perched on her head.... I thought she looked like she'd enjoyed a few reds so I worked my card from there.  Also in the stash was this background.. I think created from Distress Oxide ink smooched onto a stencil, sprayed with water and pressed over white card.  Also in the stash the die cut sentiment in black - think that might have been meant as a shadow layer that didn't get used.  So all I needed was to stamp my wine bottle and glass, colour and fussy cut them... the hardest part was arranging the bits on the background.... finally have her balancing on the sentiment, glass in wing with the rest of the bottle firmly balanced in the 'Merry'.

I am playing along with Christmas Kickstart challenge #29   ...   AND   ....  Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge #374   ....   AND  .....   Rudolph Days March challenge.
Thanks for stopping by my blog  ---  have a Happy Day and stay safe.
