Birdies Keeping Warm

Hi All! I always think when Halloween starts it is the beginning of the busy season. There are so many fun activities ahead of us before 2011 is over. I decided today to create a card with cooler weather in mind. I know I shouldn't be complaining that it will be in the 70s today, but really. It's Kansas and this is kind of unusual for us. I'm sure I'll be thinking of this day when I am freezing my behind off.

Anyway, on to the card. Aren't these birds so cute! I really like the Winter Frolic cartridge. There are darling images and just right for the season upon us. The snow texture was made with the Snow Marker by heating to make it puffy. I have used the Marvy brand as well and think they both work about the same. One difference is that the Marvy will keep a nice clean dot where the marker really does look like misshapen snow.

I wanted to use more of the Authentique 6 x 6 paper pad, but the design didn't work out that way. I can't wait to use some more of it. The papers are really pretty. The birds' tummies are a specialty paper and I like how they have a little more texture to them.

So, so cute! I totally forgot about these birds on Winter Frolic. I like how you interpreted the challenge and made it yours with the winter season. Great snow too! I've never tried that technique, but yours has wonderful results!
