Cozy Chickadees

Happy Thursday everyone!
Crazy weeks it's been...I hope everyone on the east coast is safe and recovering!

Wanted to share a Christmas card with you today.  I'm slowly getting into the spirit...not really sure why it has been so hard for me this year.  I finally bought some bundles of Christmas paper and I think that is helping.  New paper always gets the mojo going right? :)
I love how this card turned out!  I used the super cute image Cozy Little Chickadees from Meljen's Designs.  Just love these little birdies!  Looking at this image takes me back when I was younger, my mom always had bird feeders around in the winter for the chickadees, and I would usually be the one to fill them.  Almost every time I went out there, I would put some bird seed in my hand and wait patiently for the chickadees to jump down and sit on my mittens and eat.  It's such a peaceful memory.
I took some scraps from my stash and paper pieced their little scarves to coordinate with my papers.
Then I used my Memory Box Snowflake Corner die cut, added some white paint and glitter to the snowflakes and tucked it behind the image.
I've added a little glossy accents to the heart and berries, and some paint/glitter to the little snow mounds on the branch.
