Christmas 15, a different robin

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs

My card for today features another one of my robin photographs. This one was taken at St. Chads Water, a little reserve about 3 miles from where I live.  It's a lovely spot to sit and read on a summer afternoon. I have mentioned it quite often but never thought to put a link on before, very remiss of me!

My usual white linencard for the base, folded and cut to 6x6.
I opened my photograph inPSE5 and used the cookie cutter to create the topper, taking the colour from the robin for the starburst, then printed it onto the same linencard before cutting it and the mat with Spellbinders die.
I was lucky enough to find a 12x12 DCWV page, which matched the colour beautifully, 
in my stash.
Corners cut with Memory Box snowflake die then cut into two.
That's all there is to it folks :o)
