Christmas in July with birds and pearls

When I read the criteria for this week's challenge at Crafts4Eternity it just said Christmas to me!
The recipe this week is
follow the sketch
pearls
birds.
So I used these lovely little birds from Dulcie Jackson stamps. The holly bush below them is from Creative Expressions which I stamped with distress inks and then used a wet paintbrush to blend it in. I added some red berries and covered them in glitter glue and now they show up green on the photo! The birds are coloured with promarkers. The papers are from DCWV along with the little snowman embellishment. I added some pearls and a ribbon and punched out some little snowballs. The sentiment is from Crafty Sentiments.
The prize this week is 3 digis from crafts4Eternity!
I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Tuesday Taggers - Christmas in July (prize from Janet aka ClarkyJ)
2. Stamptacular Sunday - Christmas in July
3. Aud Sentiment - Choose your own Christmas sentiment
4. Simon says - we are all going dotty!
5. I Love Promarkers - Christmas in July
6. Oh Alice - birds
