Visions of Sugarplums 2015 - Day 2

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Visions of Sugarplums 2015 Blog Hop.

I hope that you are all ready for some more fabulous Christmas inspiration.  Did you enjoy yesterdays amazing creations from everyone?!

Another traditional card from me today.  Again using the wonderful Polkadoodles Picknix 3 - Nordic Winter Collection.  I absolutely adore Nikky's colouring on this robin - it is stunning.  Love how we can use the precoloured images!

To keep the mojo going, I used another mix from the Blueprints at My Favourite Things.  

For the inside I used the same papers and then added a smaller image of the robin to my message panel :-)

All the layers were inked and several layered on foam tape.

Loving these gorgeous papers, so wonderful.

Once again, as I really do need to get my cards posted overseas, I have my a flat as a pancake version too :-)

Another two cards done, one flat and one fat LOL!
