Dragons Dream #131 Merry Christmas

Wow I cannot believe this is our last TIO challenge before Christmas, this year has gone by so quickly. This time around we have a Christmas themed challenge, with no recipe to follow, the only stipulation, as always is that you use at least one real stamp on your tags and have fun!
I am back in vintage mode again and loving this Kandi Core card form Kanban, it looks like old leather when it's distressed and sanded.
My cheeky little Robin had to make an appearance again, this time I've cut him out and layered him up along with some foliage, also cut from the Kandi Core. He's one of many to have been watercoloured with Distress Inks for a Vintage feel, the others are lined up ready for my own Christmas Cards. The HOTP sentiment is embossed using Wow Pearl Gold Sparkle, love their powders!
We hope you join in with our festive challenge this time, just click on the link on my sidebar, and don't forget, at least one real stamp must be used on your tag.
Merry Christmas Elizabeth xxx

A lovely tag Elizabeth. That robin is such a lovely stamp, coloured and cut out so brilliantly. Haven't come across the Kandi core card but I'm assuming it's similar to Coredinations.
