Plaid Christmas


I was looking through my digis and came across this set of birds which I've taken to be robins. I've used distress and regular crayons to colour the image. I cut out and simply mounted onto some plaid background paper. The sentiment is from an oldie but good Paula Pascale set.

I was aiming for white space but it did seem to have too much so I die cut some leaves and berries from the plaid and added to two of the corners.

I'm entering this into the CAS Christmas card challenge  for plaid.

Defo Robins Lynn and the tartan (plaid) makes it feel so seasonal and what a lovely idea punching some matching leaves.
