Lovebird Christmas

Hi friends!  It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's contest week over at Mojo Monday!  Play along with this week's sketch for a chance to win one of several prizes from Verve! The more entries we have, the more prizes, so stamp to your heart's content!

My card uses a whole lot of mix and match Verve goodness!  The chevron tag, snowflake and two sentiments are from the new Holiday Treats set.  The tag is stamped in cherry cobbler, the main sentiment and snowflake in black and the Merry Christmas sentiment  in old olive onto designer paper.  The tag is cut with the Tagged Rectangle Die and I added a bow from the Stormy Skies Ribbon Collection   The snowflake is cut with the Winter Fun Die Set and I colored with a blender pen, then coated with glossy glaze and some glitter sprinkles.

The birds are from the Bright Spirits set and I used the solid bird duo stamp from Love Story to coat them with Versamark and emboss with Iridescent Ice.  They're cut with the coordinating Love Birds Die Set   My leafy sprigs are from the  Sunny Days set and I stamped in always artichoke and embossed with Iridescent Ice before cutting with the Leafy Sprigs Die Set.  I finished off with some silver gray pearls on my snowflake center and the top and bottom of my border strip.

There you have it!  A whole lot of die cutting fun!  {grin}  I hope you have a fantastic start to your week!  Stay warm!
