Season's Greetings!!

It's that time of year again, and I am woefully behind on my Christmas cards. How do I let this happen? I must seriously thrive under pressure!! I had to try out this image from Rusty Pickle Digital Delights...I printed it a little big, but I made it work on the card. It was really a dream to color! I was a little limited on my reds that I had, but things came together, and I am pleased. I hope no ornithologists are looking at my blog because I am not sure that I got the color grade and variations correct. Honestly, I don't know any ornithologists, so we should be ok!!
Don't forget to check out the Copic giveaway on the Rusty Pickle Digital Delights site...it's an awesome contest that you won't want to miss!! And, you don't want to miss all of the cool samples and ideas over at the Rusty Pickle Digital Delights DT blog!
