Oh what a darling unicorn

Also unicorns remind me of birthday parties
I also think of rainbows.
Not sure why, but I do
I must have an over active imagine. (LOL)

Season's Greetings Challenge #4

Hello and welcome back
It's time for the next Season's Greetings Christmas Challenge

This challenge is always "anything goes (Christmas of course) - with an optional twist"
The optional twist is the picture inspiration, below, if you care to use it.

I love making Christmas cards and if you do too, 
then Season's Greetings is a challenge you will want to enter.

This challenge will run until April 11 so you have a few weeks to get a Christmas card designed
 and submitted. There is an optional twist to the challenge if you'd like -  use the picture as your inspiration.If you make a Christmas card now, you will have one less card that you need to make at Christmas time

Let e share my card with you

I love birds ("B" is for Birds) and decided to use a stamp of a bird image that I have had for eons (and it's still available for purchase). And he is the image that I thought would be perfect for this card. I also used a die to add that pine sprig behind the bird. And you know what goes great with a pine sprig - pine cones. So I added that to this card too - the perfect embellishment. 

Here are a closer pic of the bird image and the pine cones.

Stamps:  Stamp - Great Impressions - Winter Chickadee
Paper/Card Stock
: Gold Metallic, White CS, Green CS, Craft CS, DP, Elizabeth Crafts - Merry Christmas
Ink: India Ink - Black
Dies Used: Sizzix TH - Tattered Pinecones, Diemond Dies - pine branch, Elizabeth Crafts - Merry Christmas
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, dimensional foam

I am submitting my card in the following challenges:

Aaahhh - March - the harbinger of spring, flowers, birds and the end of winter.

I  decided to use the amazing Pierrot Clown Image

Here is the card I designed.

Let me show you a few close-ups

That clown image is so adorable and makes me smile.

And check out this bow.
I made it using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool

It makes multi-loop bows so easy to make
