(There are 19 cards because I made two for one challenge)
Anyway, on to my card.....
Here's a closer look at the cardinal. It's too bad the glitter on the snow isn't coming through in the picture very well because it is very sparkly and pretty. I'm going to link this card up to Less is More where their challenge is "sparkle". It's too bad the birch tree embossing isn't showing up well either. It's really helps make the card.
I decided to use one of the new stamps I got from Michaels. I just love this little cardinal stamp. I coloured it up, added some glitter to the snow, cut it and layered it on some dark brown paper. I took a panel of white and embossed it with my birch tree embossing folder. Layered that on some red and attached to a kraft card base. I attached my bird panel with some foam dots. I was inspired (once again) by FF's " use a bird challenge.
Now, I need to take a moment and welcome a couple of new followers for last month. I'm a bit behind in my posts due to all the craft fairs I've been participating in. This past weekend I was at the Kredl's Market in Hampton, NB and despite the yucky weather on Sunday I did very well. Next weekend I have one craft fair on Sunday at the Boyce Farmers Market in Fredericton, NB. It's my last one. Whew! I'm going to try and put up my tree today too. So busy! Anyway, I'd like to welcome two new followers. First is Cat Craig of Cat Luvs Paper. She's a fellow Hero Arts fan and a wonderful card designer. The second is Katherine Pratt of Katherine Pratt Designs. She doesn't have a blog but if you'd like to check out her lovely cards check out her Facebook page HERE.
Well, this was a doozy of a post but I'm done for now. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
