use your wings

Good Morning lovely friends.

We have a new challenge starting today at ABC Christmas Challenge and it is
Frills or No Frills
but...must be a Christmas creation!

Our generous sponsor this time is
and the prize for the lucky winner is a $10 gift voucher.
For today's card I have gone for 'No Frills' and used some more gorgeous stamps by Stacey Yacula from Purple Onion Designs.  I chose gorgeous Snowy - Winter Owl and Lamp Post which I cut out and coloured with Copics.

I made a wintery scene using my Copic Air System and some die cuts.  Finally I added a sentiment from Tim Holtz' Small Talk.

..and here we are, always sage advice - use your wings!
