Snow Bird

I just love this snow robin image from Polly Craft and decided to use it to create a Christmas card.  The sketch that I used is from this week's Sketch Saturday challenge.  To create my card I decided to rotate the sketch. 

I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and added crystal stickles to the snow and the snow bird. To the snowflakes I added crystal stickles along with red and green rhinestones.


I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
