We are having a bird themed challenge this week at Merry Monday. Life has been a little crazy and I have taken a few weeks off from Merry Monday. So happy to be back. I can now finally get to my stamps in my craft room! The bird themed challenge was the perfect opportunity to ink up the To You and Yours Stamp Set. I have had this set in my collection for awhile now, but it had yet to see ink. I colored my bird and holly with Copics and fussy cut them out. I then layered them onto my card for more dimension.
My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.
I added a few layers to the inside to balance out the weight from the front of the card.
