Challenge #4 at Completely Christmas

Sorry I'm a bit late. I've been out most of the day with our two daughters at a Baby Expo!!! Walking around with one who is now five days overdue and the other one who is due in September. I even bought some things, lol. A new booster seat for our number two granddaughter because the other one is just too wide to fit comfortably in my car and this is a lot narrower and can be folded up for storage as well. Just what I was looking for when I bought the bigger one and couldn't find. Then I splurged and bought them both a set of bottles and a contraption to connect a shawl or blanket etc to their clothes when they are breastfeeding. Just as we were leaving we did a last minute toilet stop and they had an area with small farm animals in for the children to play in and there was two of our grandchildren running around and our DIL as well. She was there with her sister who had a little boy 8 weeks ago. We didn't know they were going and vice a versa!
Anyway I had better get on and share the card I made for the DT on Completely Christmas - I love this gorgeous image of the two birds, definitely one to keep and use again.
Here is my card...... It has an extra fold at the front which holds the little fence, holly and sentiment.

This is a close up of the birds and you can see I've used a textured card to print the image on. This is because I can no longer get a 210 gsm weight paper  so have had to pay a bit more money and use this cardstock which is the right weight and is okay for using the copic markers on. You don't notice the texture when you are looking at the card and I quite like how it looks anyway, lol.

SU Calypso Coral cardstock for the cardbase and diecut
White textured cardstock from Quill
Scraps for the fence and holly
DP is from First Edition Paper 12x12 paper pad - Christmas Village
Image is Chickadees digital stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle
Sentiment is from Su - More Merry Messages set of clear stamps
Dies - Joy Crafts for the large die cut, Nestie Classic Circles, Cottage Cutz for the holly, sorry need to check whose the fence die was so fill that in later when I find it!
Punches - Large Scalloped Square
Copic Markers
SU Ballet Blue inkpad
Memento Black inkpad
D/S tape roller
