Winter Easel Card

Today is suppose to be a very warm 29C here, and then we have a big change coming our way - wet and cool, only 14 on Tuesday and a whooping 10 on Wednesday!!  I think it will be a great excuse to stay indoors and color!!
Todays' card is another beautiful image from Karen Middleton and is available online at Cuddly Buddly.  This one is called "Winter Flight" and I used my Spellbinders to make a beautiful easel card after coloring her with Copics.  I've added shine to her wings, the stitching around the card, and the small starbursts around the bird with the Sakura Clear Star Gelly roll pen.  Pearls were of course made with a Viva Decor pearl pen, snowflakes were included with a Christmas gift I received from a friend a couple of years ago.  The dp is Mitten Weather from Cosmo Cricket.
