Happy Holidays everyone!

I combined two photos of the birds pasting them together, used the buzz filter and neat image to smooth, used the healing tool on the BG and used the smudge tool on the feathers, added snow with a texture brush.

    Beautiful Christmas card Susan! Great job with the digital effects, and time consuming. Love your idea with the "couple"; so cute!

A ruler would help with the placement of the backround backdrop. Other than that good pic.
