Day 1 - Limelight's 12 Days of Christmas

Plus, Mojo63! Whew! Love it when I can combine challenges. I like doing them because they often stretch my "box" or safety zone or whatever you want to call it. And, they're fun! I always enjoy seeing what all the challenge participants come up with.

I used Julee's latest Mojo Monday sketch for this card - Mojo63. She always has the best sketches! I decied to combine it with the bird & tree theme that Lisa had challenged everyone to as part of the 12 Days of Christmas party at Limelight Papercrafts. I LOVED her challenge so I had to play along. The tree stamp is from Unity, the bird is from Inkadinkadoo and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up!. I colored the tree with colored pencils and gamsol and randomly added some colored microbeads, just for fun (you can see them better if you click on the picture for the "large" view). Stamped and cut out the bird and then went over him with December Sky Shimmerz Blingz.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
