Hey Little Birdie...

Good Evening...
Today's card is sheer indulgence on my part.  I have had this gorgeous Sugar Nellie digi - Hey Little Birdie for ages and have wanted to colour her.  I decided that today was the am trying to make at least one Christmas Card a month and I am running out of April time!

Today's card then is Sugar Nellie's Hey Little Birdie by Funky Kits.  I have coloured her with Copics and added some dots of Clear Jelly Roll pen.  I used Papermania cardstock and paper from a Kaisercraft Blue Bay pad to create mats and layers.  I also did something that is very different for me - another first and I machine stitched the edges of the card.  I rather enjoyed that!

I added some twine and a wooden button from The Ribbon Girl along with some teeny tiny hearts from my trinket box.  Finally, I added a sentiment tag from Lili of the Valley.
