A Little Bird Told Me ....

This has to be one of my favourite Little Claire stamps - perfect for Christmas and for winter birthdays and ideal for paper piecing!

I've used the image and the sentiment to make a birthday card.  I've paper pieced the little girl's coat and hat to match the background to the card - the paper I've used is from Craft Creations.
I've also used some blue card and some kraft paper and cut the mat for my main using a Nestability die.  

A few challenges for my card:
Winter Wonderland - 'birthday wishes'
Cupcake Craft Challenge - 'born on a winter's day'
Clear it Out - 'staying warm' (plus using up holiday scraps - the card and patterned paper
The Stamping Boutique - 'use a die cut' (the mat under my image)
