Christmas Blessings for FMS

It's  Saturday morning as I make this post and I am trying to get things done early before the football games start! This is my second Christmas card I have made this year. The first I will post tomorrow  for the new SUNDAY STAMPS challenge. So you might want to stop back by and see what all is going  on there...

But this one is for Freshly Made Sketches #403. It's a great little sketch. I did substitute the bars for other shapes to add a little  interest (and use my dies a little more!). When I show sketches to my husband and then the card I made, he always comments about how it's not identical to the sketch...I think he thinks I'm a rule breaker šŸ˜‚...I have to remind him it's ok to sub different shapes and elements. Sometimes I think the left brain thinker doesn't believe me...šŸ™„

The background is SU white embossing powder on white cardstock.  I was surprised  at the ivory hue, but decided it was pretty and you could probably see it better. I was going to do different bars in DSP...but being the "rule breaker", I chose these 3 elements and they work well together. Also my bird is fictiously colored...but kinda sorta close to a finch... 

Thanks for stopping by....
