Won't Take a Moment!

Won't take a moment!
Well it certainly  didn't .
Rome wasn't built in a day and neither was this..
Colouring the image was the easy  part.
It was the fathing and fiddling  that took the time.
I wanted to enter a new challenge I found
The April challenge is a Christmas Robin and they provided the digi to be used.
I Found a backing card in my stash called 'Robin on a Perch'
by 'My Paper Stash' which I thought very similar to the image so I used
the same colours  with Promarkers and a gold gel pen.
Easy part done.
Next came the fathing and fiddling!
I used  Cheery Lynn Designs DL187 Kaleidoscope Lace Mega Doily die
To do the cut out shape.
As this die only comes as half a shape it is fine for doing the gate fold doors.
To cut a complete shape  though you have to cut one side, turn,
position second die cut to first cut and then die cut the second half.
Word sentiment cut using Britannia dies.
Coloured card stock and ribbon from stash.

Doors opened to reveal the inside.
Entering into the following challenges:
Digi stamps 4 Joy # April Christmas Robin.
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra # anything goes with a Christmas card.
Jingle Belles #  3 or more layers.
Brown sugar #91 Anything  goes.
Alphabet Challenge # F = Feathers.
Completely Christmas #9 Anything  goes.

Hello Mrs. A and I apologize for being absent. Life was getting in my way but now I have reviewed your posts I missed and I am blown away with your creative and beautiful pieces you have made. The tin can reminds me of my Grandma cutting and making all sorts of things with the pieces. Fabulous Flower. I always enjoy your blog dear...
