Okay fellow Crafters here is my take on this challenge.  Hope you enjoy the card.
I used 3 Birds in Parade (starting to be one of my favorite cartridges).  I chose the Santa on pg 43 and cut all pieces at 4.50 using my gypsy.  I used Stickles (X-mas Red) on the boots and hat and (Clear) on the beard and all areas that are white.  Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face Assortment for the face.  Micheals Recollection Kraft cardstock 4x6.  Tim Holtzs Stamper Anonymous "Mini Holidays 2" and his Distress Ink " fire brick".  Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels 8 (die #8 largest) and Petite Scalloped Ovals Large (#2) and Memento Ink Tuxedo Black.  The bird was cut from scraps that I have in a bin.  I am trying to go to my scrap bin first before reaching for new sheets of paper.  Mixture od Recollections, Brazzil and Archiver's cardstock.  Its mainly the paper I buy.  I also used a lot of pop dots to raise the bird and some lower profile pop dots for the "Merry Christmas".
