Isabella's Challenge - Use 3D, paper tole or decoupage

Hi, and welcome to a new challenge at Isabella's!! Have you seen the new design on our challenge blog??? It's so pretty!!!

I am trying to start with my Christmas cards so I used this beautiful ornate bird from Isabella's Sketchbook store.

I printed it 3 times and cut out some parts to create a dimensional feel.

The papers are from Websters Pages and I also added some pearlescent vellum embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The panel behind the bird is embossed with Tim Holtz folder.

The ribbon, lace and poinsettias are from my stash, I added some Stickles to the petals and centers of flowers.I didn't really want to use piles of embellies as the paper is just too pretty to cover up!

Copic colours:
BG72, B01, C1, YR61, YR00, YR0000, Y28, Y32, Y0000, o

And if you don't have any of Isabella's images yet, she has a sale on in her store for today only so hurry! All the images will be only 2 USD!!!
