Little Red Robins

The stamp and papers I've used here were a little birthday treat to myself, they're both from Papermania's Little Red Robin range, designed by one of my favourite illustrators, Lucy Cromwell.
 I coloured the stamped image with Promarkers, using a white gel pen to add some snowflakes.
The ivy corner was made with a Marianne die, I thought it was a good match for the ivy patterned paper, and the holly border was made with a Martha Stewart punch.
I finished off with some Christmas ribbon, a bow, a Craftwork Cards sentiment and some clear gems.
