A shaped Christmas Card at Sparkles Christmas

It's the start of a new month, and that means a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas. This month we would like to see a SHAPED card - and no, square isn't a shape, at least not for the purposes of this challenge!

The prize for this month is being donated by our sponsor, Marianne Dies

Having said that square isn't a shape, my card LOOKS square when it comes out of the envelope:

But then it springs into life......

.... as a diamond fold card.

It's a surprisingly easy card to make, using a Hougie board and a 4" x 12" piece of card,  and a great way to use tiny scraps and snippets. The background paper is left over from an old magazine freebie pad and the main image stamped with a cute Woodware robin from a set I won in the Snippets Playground.

I'm sharing this with
