Things that fly - at Moving along with the Times - this week

Good morning all

There's a new challenge starting at 

the theme is

Things that fly

It can be anything at all - if you check over at the MAWTT challenge blog you'll see that the team have been very creative - everything from birds to kites and a lot more besides!

I thought this was a great theme to make a Christmas card 
(one more to add to the stash)
and got out my new dies and embossing folders that I bought a couple of weeks ago
- I've been dying to use them and I knew there was a cute little bird that would fit this challenge perfectly. I love the Scandinavian style.

This is what i did....

Red card - Luxury collection - red from Crafter's companion
Dies - all from Crafter's Companion Scandinavian Christmas collection by Sara Davies
Embossing Folder from Crafters Companion Nordic collection 
inked with red berry DI from Tim Holtz

The bird is a fab die - it's one of the deep cut mixed media dies so it cuts several at a time and also would be great for all kinds of  fabric Christmas Projects - I think I might make some little felt bird decorations to hang on the Christmas tree - I know I've got some red and white felt squares and some ricrac  to  make a hanging loop .... now where to find them lol

Hope you'll join in with our challenge
