A Little birdie Told Me...

Three more Christmas cards for you today.  These three are all very similar, although not exactly the same.
All three are 4 1/4"x5 1/2."  One of them is tall and the other two long.  I used a shimmery blue pre-made card by DCWV for the card bases.  I then cut some shiny blue cardstock, from the Brights & Jewels Stack by DCWV, at 4"x5 1/4."  The next layer is 1/8" smaller and is from the Arctic Wishes Stack by DCWV.  I wrapped it with some sheer snowflake ribbon that I got at JoAnns last year.  I used Jolly Holidays to cut my birds, which are all cut at 2 1/2."  I used some patterned cardstock from the Arctic Wishes Stack for the birds.  They are all adhered to the card with pop-dots.  I stamped the sentiment on some white cardstock and matted it with the shiny blue cardstock.  I finished off the front of the card with some blue gems, light blue on two cards and dark blue on the other one.

 For the inside of the card, I cut more of the shiny blue cardstock at 4"x5 1/4."  I then cut some light blue cardstock at 3 1/2"x3 3/4."  Finally I cut some white cardstock at 2 1/2"x2 3/4" and stamped my sentiment on it.  The sentiments are from My Pink Stamper and are stamped in night sky ink by Tsukineko.

I made this card for the following challenges:
