Day 3 of Inspired by Kristina Werner series with Joy Taylor!

Hello friends!

Today's card was my favourite of all the cards Kristina made this year (and that's sayin' something because I loved ém all!) so I'm going to jump right in!

Here is Kristinas SUPER cute card for Day 14 of her series.

 SO cute. I love the little scarves the birds are wearing.

Here is my take:
I used the Lawn Fawn Christmas lights from Cozy Christmas, the birds are from Critters on the Farm (don't tell anyone they're actually chicks lol)'. 
I really wanted to add a 'girlie' something to one of the birds, (to make it look like a girl and a boy on the wire) so I used the tie from the stork's bundle in Lawn Fawn's "Plus One" set. It turned out to be the perfect hairbow! I also coloured the boy bird a darker shade of brown to make the girl that bit more feminine :)
Given that this card is so simple design-wise, I wanted to add an extra element so I heat embossed snowflakes falling all around the birdies but kept it in clear embossing powder so that the snowflakes wouldn't detract from the scene.

Well that's it from me for today--hope you liked it!

Here is what I used:

So cute! I just love those little smiley lights from Lawn Fawn... I can't wait to use them this year, I purchased that set after Christmas last year so didn't get to use them. Love the added snowflake element!
