Birdsong Christmas

I'm up to 30 cards for Christmas!  Woo-hoo!  I've had this Magenta Musical Bird Collage for some time and haven't really seen much done with it in Blogland for inspiration.  So I kept it fairly simple and just stamped it in Memento's Cottage Ivy and distressed it a little with Antique Linen ink.  The edge is lined with Krylon's Gold Leaf pen, as is the embossed background.
The cardstock colors are Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, and Handsome Hunter.
The tag is done with Darcie's Shrink Plastic and a Stampin Up sentiment (no clue which set).

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew - Things with Wings
Creative Creations - Early Christmas
Crafty Bloggers - Things with Wings
Emma's Crafty Challenge - Birds

Thanks for visiting!
