Merry Monday - For the Birds

This week over at the Merry Monday Challenge they are asking us to create a Christmas card with a bird on it. That gives me an opportunity to break out this oldie but goodie, but for some strange reason little used stamp set!
I was excited to get to use these new stitched dies by Kat Scrappiness that I won in a blog hop. They make stitching on both the inside and the outside of the rectangle. And yes that means I have an opposite card topper at home waiting to be used. It might even end up being a Christmas card for all we know.

The Fine Print: Bird and holly stamp by Stampin' Up "Beautiful Season," double stitched rectangle dies by Kat Scrappiness, designer paper by DCWV, and ribbon from my stash.

That's some fantastic coloring you've done on the bird - it's so lifelike and looks amazing with that plaid background!
