Christmas Kickstart: Ornamental Birds

I will always be a player of challenges.  I need some piece of the card-making equation to be defined for me.  When I have to pick a theme and colors and a layout and the stamps or dies and a sentiment and...and...and - I kind of freeze. My husband would tell you that I have too much stuff to pick from - he'd be right.  When yet another new addition to my stash arrive in my mailbox and the Christmas Birds challenge at Christmas Kickstart happened at the same time - I didn't freeze at all!!

This die set is just charming.  I had so much fun putting this together!  He's an odd looking little bird but it just adds to the retro look.  I did give him a branch to sit on and I decorated the ornament with a bow both from a different Sizzix set - Funky Festive.
