Let It Snow

Challenge 101
Anything Goes With an optional twist Let It Snow

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

In my happy place with this bag I created just in time to fill it with some special gifts for Christmas. Oh I love birds so much and often wish I could be like them, wings to fly and explore the world with no need for all the hassle at airports and no need to apply for visas to travel :) :) :) I have used this image several times, a real favourite of mine and I think he looks wonderful on the front of the bag.  I created the Let It Snow sentiment in Illustrator and then exported as an svg. to my die cutting program.  The background paper was also digitally designed with the image of the BlueTit super imposed and then coloured with Polychromos crayons.  I bought this very odd snow stuff for my Grandson last year so pinched that back, have to admit I was rather surprised to find when I opened the bag it was all clear plastic chopped up, yucky to work with but has the right effect. I finished of with a good old tartan bow to pick up the red of the berries and represent my Scottish roots (yep I am proud of them, I originate from the Highlands north of Inverness through my great grandfather's side.
