Festive bird house

This is my card for this week's Passion for ProMarkers blog challenge. The theme is “swirls & sparkles”.

I begun by stamping the image. The stamp I used is Bird houses - holly by Lili of the Valley. I coloured in the image with ProMarkers. I added sparkle with various colours of Stickles. I cut out the image and gold frame with Lacey Circles Nestabilities.

For the background I cut squares of spotty and gold card. I attached these to a square card blank. From gold card I cut four swirls edges using Memory Box Fauntleroy Crest die. I added these to the card to form a frame. I added the image to the card. To finish I added an oval greeting and gold dots.
