Merry Monday Christmas Bird

Use a bird on your  card, the theme for this week's challenge at 
Merry Monday #78.
Lots of layers, patterns and vintage colors for my card.
Here's the inspiration photo:
I went with PTI's Birds and Blooms set, layered onto a die cut Think Big Favs #19, then onto a glittered snowflake from Fancy Flakes, onto a wine bottle die cut, and then onto a tag from Tag Sale.
Phew! Told you there were lots of layers!
Had the card arranged, not sewn, for days. Wasn't until I woke on Fri. to see Melissa Phillips' samples for PTI's upcoming release, that I had the final look! She split a vellum die cut snowflake, and sewed them on the edges of her card. Perfect! Had to give it a try. Gives a hint to the pattern underneath, without covering or overpowering.
Ribbon & velvet bell from Michaels
Pattern paper from last year's stash (Authentique).
Cardstock: PTI
