When the Red, Red, Robin........

I'm like a dog with two tails at the moment, playing with my Docrafts goody bags, which are filled with Christmas goodness, and yes, I bought both of them!  This card uses the lovely, new Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection papers, Big Bloomers and buttons from one of the bags.
 The cute robin image is a digi stamp from Pink Gem, you'll find it in the store here.  I've used Promarkers to colour her, adding some sparkle with Star Dust Stickles, and sticking on some tiny pearls for mistletoe berries.  The faux stitching was done by piercing holes and joining them up with a Micron pen.
I cut a Big Bloomer in half and tucked the pieces under the topper, then embellished with punched hearts.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, I decorated it with gems, and I finished my card with three tiny buttons.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
