Christmas Robin

Hi All
I hope you are all well and those that have been affected by the storm are doing okay. My thoughts are with you.

I have had this ginger colored card from Limetree crafts in my stash for a while and have been wanting to use for a long time - so here's my first card with it.
Using a bell shaped mask and swept white ink across the aperture. I then stamped  an old Kanban stamp within the bell with black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used Glossy Accents on the beak and colored the berries in red.
I stamped the sentiment in the same white ink and added pearls and a bow as finishing touches. I mounted it on to some Topaz pearl cardstock from Lime Tree crafts.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
