Weekend Snow Bird Card

Happy Weekend!
We are having a secret Santa at my school and my friend asked me to make a card.  Her SS likes nature and birds and I thought of a perfect card to make.  I also noticed that there were tons of challenges out this week that had the theme of snow or snowflakes and this card fit perfectly!

For my card I started with a Core'dinations blue base and ran it through my cuttlebug embossing it with my snowflakes folder.  I then sanded it to bring out the dots.  Next I cut out a tree using my Silhouette and lightly sanded it.  I then stamped and colored a Paper Smooches bird.  I then made a snow hill for the background and used the tearing technique.  I then adhered the tree and placed my little bird in the tree.  Next I made a smaller hill of snow using the tearing technique and pop dotted it in front. 
 To make the snowflakes stand out a bit I used my Ranger Liquid Pearls and made some dots on top of the embossed snowflakes.  Here is a closer look at the liquid pearl dots. 

Supplies
cardstock- Core'dinations
stamps- paper smooches
silhouette
liquid pearls
memento ink
spectrum noir markers


I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Let it Snow Simon Says Stamp challenge
Casual Fridays let it snow challenge
Cas*ology Snowflake challenge
Paper Smooches and Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back on Monday with a week of all new layouts and cards!  I don't know about you but I can't wait!! See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day and weekend!
