FSS Christmas Cardinal

Good morning! Today's card makes me yearn for Christmas and SNOW! I know if I wait long enough they are BOTH just around the corner! I used FSS Christmas Cardinal image on my card for today...it is pre-colored and just one in a series of winter birds that Tracey has in the store. All the paper used on this card is from Pizzazz Aplenty...the silver and green paper has such a pretty pretty shimmer to it that I just couldn't catch on the camera. I used the Fancy Square nesties to emboss the silver layer and die cut the green layer. The flourish is a Marrianne die...added a silver doily behind the image to help set it off the card. My corners were cut with an SU punch and embossed with Cuttlebug folder. As I look at this card now, I wish I had added some sparkle in the image with some stickles or glitter....guess I can still do that. Anyhoooooo, hope you enjoyed my creation today and are inspired to go out and check out this set of winter birds in the FSS store! Have a great day today and thank you for dropping in and leaving some love!

HUGS!
