Whiff of Joy DT - a traditional preview

I have another preview to show you today from the new Whiff of Joy collection which will be released on Friday 1st October!! This time a more traditional image. After a lot of searching on the internet for Canadian birds (as I know that Alison Acton the designer is Canadian so it was a sure bet the bird must be popular in Canada) I discovered that it looked most like a blue jay and was then able to copy the beautiful colours of this bird. It is such a vivid blue in all the photos I've seen, I'd love to see one! I have followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday for my card and the papers are from MME Christmas stack distressed with walnut stain distress ink.

I have coloured the image with copics and added some white glitter to the snowflake on the bauble. The sentiment is also from Whiff of Joy - a set of lots of wonderful Christmas sentiments together with a fancy swirl frame to go around them, and the set comes ready mounted in a CD case for storage too!
I have kept the embellishments stylish and simple as I wanted the image and papers to be the focus of my card. I added a red bow using ribbon from The Hobby House and some red pearls, also from The Hobby House.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
