Blue Bird in a Topiary

Ladies and gentlemen, you better hurry on over to Paper Craft Planet this morning where all kinds of excitement is happening!! Today is the kick-off for their 12 Days of Christmas event. For the next 12 days there will be challenges and prizes from sponsoring companies each and every day!!

The First Day of Christmas is hosted today by Kitchen Sink Stamps. Maria will be giving away her two newest sets, 3 Step Bells and 3 Step Poinsettia, to the lucky winner.

The winner will be selected from cards loaded on Paper Craft Planet which contain a tree and/or a bird for the First Day of Christmas! The key word on your upload needs to be 12day1.

I created my topiary tree by using layers 1 and 2 of the 3 Step Hydrangea, the rose stem from Hearts & Roses, and the sentiment from Playful Christmas all by Kitchen Sink Stamps.

The bird was created with circle punches by Stampin' Up and the fern punch by Martha Stewart.

Stamps by Kitchen Sink Stamps: 3 Step Hydrangea, Hearts & Roses, Playful Christmas

Papers by Stampin' Up: Cranberry Crisp, Tempting Turquoise, and US White

Papers by BasicGrey: Figgy Pudding

Inks by Stampin' Up: Wild Wasabi, Going Grey, Basic Gray, and Chocolate Chip

Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder were used for the sentiment.
