"Winter Blues" Christmas Card

This is the first time I have used my New MS Branch Punch and my NEW Stampin Up Bird Punch.  I punched 2 wings (one for the wing and the other for the top of his head) 2 bodies (one is white the other in blue for his tail).  I colored his beak and some markings in white and black pen.  His eye is a small circle punch with a black bling.  I also stitched around the outside in black.  Let me know what you think.  Don't forget that Pam is having another challenge at "Just Punch It":  The challenge is Winter Blues!!  So get punching and join us.

I used in this project:

McGill - Pine Branch Punch
MS - Branch Punch
MS - Lace Punch
Stampin Up - Word Window Punch
Stampin Up - Modern Label
Stampin Up - Builder Bird 1 Punch
EK Success - Small Circle Punch
Bling It on - Blue Bling
Bling it on - Black Bling (eye)
Mbossabilities Embossing Folder
Ribbon from Stash
