Crafty Calendar November Challenge - Snow Birds Christmas Card

Good morning.  I hope you are all safe and well this morning.  I had a busy week last week,  had a few days in Norfolk birdwatching with the OH, then off to Cheshire Oaks, the NEC to the Creative Craft Show and then finishing off with a trip to Birmingham to the Frankfurt Christmas Market, I think I need a few days to recover....

It's the first Saturday in November and we have a new challenge for you over at Crafty Calendar and the theme this week is Anything Goes.

For my cards I have a couple of variations to share.

They have all the same elements but are different colours and the birds have been coloured differently.

The image is from a set by Artsystamper called Snow Birds and is an American bird called a Chickadee but I have tried to colour it based on British birds.  For the first card I based the colours on a Great Tit and for the second one is based on a Coal Tit.

The foliage and flowers are cut using the Perfect Pinecones die set from Stamps by Me.
The background is embossed using the Lumber embossing folder from Sizzix/Tim Holtz with a touch of gilding wax.

We are sponsored for this challenge by:
