Branch & Flourish Tree with a dove - Christmas card

Hi, everyone!
 Tonight, I enjoyed holiday card making to use one of my new stamps given by Hero Arts as my fab-five prize in this August which was delivered about 10 days ago. I was going to play with them from this morning, but the urgent order from one of my clients was sent by e while my sleep time (I heard that they read my yesterday post of my today's schedule for playing with my new toys - I didn't ever told them about this non-official blog, but they already noticed it... So I played with stamps for about an hour after finishing it.)

 The items I received from Hero Arts were: Cling / Wreath of Leaves (CG215) and Snowy House (CG212),  Wood Mounted Starburst Lace (S5317) and Branch & Flourish Tree (K5445), Hue Ribbons (CH229, 230) and the Holiday catalogue. Thank you so very much Hero Arts for the generosity! :)

 And, here is my brandnew holiday card, just finished for sharing and for the the Hero Arts October challenge Round 2.
Click the photo above to enlarge please.

 This is a simple and flat card - only one wing at the front of the birdie is 3 - dimensional.
Used two pigment chalk inks for clear embossing for the Branch & Floulish tree, because I wanted to keep the clear lines of its elegant stamp image - generally, using color embossing powder makes tiny colored embossing dots which sometimes I'm not find of. (I recognized that it comes to be so effective elements. It depends on the designs or the purposes.) The coloring for the birdie are by Copic markers and Twinkling H2Os. And did hand stitching to use light pale lilac metalic thread for its finishing.
