IC150 Chirp Up and OCC Home for Christmas

Happy Saturday you all!!!!

Can you tell I got up early to play...??? I already made two cards - I consider this a fabulous day for me - LOL!!!

When I saw the IC150 this morning I knew I had to play along - it's right up my alley!!!

I was inspired by this pretty image and I had the perfect Set called *Chirp* from *Little Paper Shop*.

I inked the tree and sentiment in Wild Wasabi and the birdies in Tangerine Tango. To finish the card off I've pierced right below the sentiment and added the DS TT Ribbon.





Next I'm showing off the OCC Sketch. I used the new Holiday Set *Home for Christmas*. This will be my 3rd Christmas Card design for my little *Challenge* I have going on with my friend Mary Fish .

The DP is from the new Holiday DP *Ski Slope*. I colored the image with various Copic & Prismacolor Markers. Then bedazzled it with some Dazzling Diamond Glitter. Next I layered the image onto Chocolate Chip. Raised it onto Whisper White and at last I added the Real Red CS. The whole panel was raised again with Stampin Dimensionals. Next I added a Brown Satin Ribbon (Walmart) which I tied to a Copper Ribbon Holder (SU) and some medium Copper Brads (Michaels).

Hope you like it???
Wanna see my other two *Christmas* cards??? Go down a bit and take a look!!!
Don't miss my *Blog Candy*!!! Please read the details first!!!
Have a great weekend I'll see ya Monday!!!
