No Bob, Bob Bobbing Allowed, Robin Christmas Card

This card measures 6ins x 6ins and is made using a hand cut, white linen effect card blank.
I can’t pretend that this was my idea, I took it from a cartoon card I saw, which I immediately knew I could adapt to use with my Paperchase robin stickers (£1 per pack).
I created the background using scraps of a Papercellar snow patterned card and white glitter paper. The signpost is also made from  plain, white card scraps, on to which I added my own doodle affect handwriting.  To add extra dimension and sparkle I then used a white 3D effect paint, with glitter sprinkled over it to the top of the sign.  The finishing touch is obviously those robins, who despite the warning  still seem to be making an attempt to bob, bob, bob!!!
