Little robin red breast

I got the chance to take the day off work today! We are so busy that most of the time I can't just take a day off, so when the opportunity arose, I took it. Unfortunately I spent most of the morning cleaning and defrosting the freezer - things that just needed to be done. But now - it's craft time.....
I've used an new embossing folder from Forever Friends and debossed for a change, then stamped a xmas FF stamp into the centre, the sentiment is from Paula Pascale. I used watercolour pencils for the image and then added some diamond dust and MCS snow.
I'd like to enter this card into-
Winter Wonderland challenge - robin redbreast
Forever Friends challenge - use a sentiment
Daring cardmakers sponsered by The Ribbon Reel, - a bird on your card
A Gem of a challenge - Christmas with a heart - it's on the debossing!
