Speedy Fun with a Punch and a Stamp

The challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge for  Week 90 suggested by Brenda is to use a border punch. I pulled out the Martha Stewart Double Loop punch and created this card using the "Peaceful Nuthatch" stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers. The nuthatch stamp is so much fun to color with Copics and I used my trusty bird book as a color guide. I used a neutral background to highlight the beautiful bird and used the layout from the Card Patterns Sketch 148. I finished with a twig of artificial evergreen snipped from a Christmas swag.
