Christmas Bluejay

We are down to only  74 days until Christmas!!  :-O  So I made a Christmas card today.  :-)  I've been trying to get back into my craft room but have had company ever since I got back from my trip, so that took precedence!   I've had several digis printed for quite awhile and decided to make a card from this Doodle Pantry image...


Challenges...
Technique Tuesday October Challenge - Bargello *really cool technique*
Simon Says Stamp - Dies or Punches
The Stamp Man October Challenge - butterflies, birds, and bees
The Perfect Sentiment PSC53C - Christmas Critters (is a bird a critter??)
The Cuttlebug Spot - "What's on your desk?" (this image has been printed for quite awhile and was sitting patiently waiting for me!!)
Shopping Our Stash Challenge 72 - tic, tac, toe
      *I used the left side-brad, black, sparkle (does Glossy Accents count as sparkle?)

Glossy Accents on the branch
