My Besties UK Guest

Hi Bloggers. I am honored to post my card today as a guest designer for the
My Besties UK Challenge Blog. You should really go & visit, they do some beautiful work & have awesome challenges for you to enter & possibly win!
 Carol, aka silverpaws asked me to guest, and I leaped on the opportunity to do it!
I had this Image 958 colored up for a while now & it is one of my favorites, so I decided to make a Christmas card up. I love the image & her two little birdie friends just make it so special. If you'd like to see all the wonderful Christmas images from Sherri Baldy see them here.
My card is a 5X7, one of my favorite sizes to make, and I cut my image with the "out of the box" technique, or in this case, out of the circle. I added some Stardust Stickles to the fur on her clothing, I mean what's Christmas without glitter, right? The snow on the bird house, trees, and ground is Aleene's Glitter Snow, and I added a bit more glitter while the paste was wet. I mean who doesn't want more glitter! The trees are from a Marianne Studio die, the ornament border is from Whimsy Stamps, which I used the negative parts from this die to make the tiny flakes on my trees and background. The snowflake border on the bottom is Frostyville from Memory Box. The "let it snow" banner is from an old Inkadinkado stamp set I have had forever seems like. I fussy cut it to fit through an old Just-Rite oval set, cut out with Spellbinders Classic Ovals Sm. 
I colored the image with my Copic markers, but Unfortunately I can't seem to find the color list.
I'm pretty sure the blues are, B99, 95, 93, 91, and a little B0000 for the pale blue. Here's a close-up of the image for you, just in case you want to figure out the colors on your own, bad me!!!!
Thanks for joining me today for my guest spot, and please come back soon.
Hugs, Maureen
