A Cardinal Christmas


Happy Saturday y'all!  With the snow we got here yesterday, I was in the mood to make a Christmas card!  I used this week's Midnight Madness sketch to showcase this gorgeous cardinal from Our Daily Bread designs.  This set is called Sing for Joy and I combined it with the Christmas set called Blessed Christmas.  I colored with copics and very lightly sprayed Marshmallow Glimmer Mist over the finished card for just a touch of sparkle!  This is also for the Ways to Use It challenge this week to have an odd number of embellishments on your card.  There are 27 pearls on the left side, three on the swirly thingy and only one swirly thingy!!  LOL!!  Thanks for taking a look and have a great weekend!

Here are the supplies I used for this card-
Cuttlebug Snow Dots folder
Copic markers
Neenah Solar White cardstock
SU! Whisper White
