Winter Blues at Dies R Us Challenge

Do you have the winter blues?
Well we certainly do at the
as our theme just happens to be 
'Winter Blues'.

I did a somewhat clean and simple card
using a 'new to me' die I recently purchased
from the Dies R Us store.

I think this cute little birdie die
'Penny Black Wonder-Joy die is the sweetest!

I used white card stock to die cut,
then added a bit of Nuvo Large Glue Pen
and sprinkled with Sparkle N Sprinkle Sparkle N Soft Twinkling Clouds
to the branches.

Have you seen the new Tutti Designs
They are fabulous and so reasonably priced too.
I used the Nesting Stitched Ovals, then embossed it.
I tilted it slightly on my paper.

I finished off with a pretty ribbon and snowflake button.
