Feeding the birds

Happy New Year everyone! On the last day of 2013, I managed to create another card. Yay!

This cute snowman image by From the heart stamps was the December Stamp of the Month, a freebie for crafters who joined last month's challenge. I did not, but I just needed to have this image so I bought it LOL.

It's hard to see the glitter, but maybe it's a bit more clear in the close-up:

Materials used:
Digital Image - From the heart stamps
Sentiment - Feed the birds stamp set by Crafter's companion
Cardstock - Core'dinations
PP - Eskimo kisses collection by BasicGrey
Colouring medium - CC Spectrum noirs
Dies - Scalloped tags and Picket fence, both by Die'sire/CC
Twine - Martha Stewart
Glitter - Clear Wink of Stella brush marker, red Stickles for the holly berries
