12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Dec 12-23 Day # 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the "Twelve Days of Christmas Blog Hop". We are so happy that you decided to Join us . If you arrived here from Mindy's then you are on the fight trail. If you just happened upon my blog and would like to join the fun then please start at the beginning with Lisa's Blog.

Today's project is a card I made for a swap earlier this month, I used my Gypsy to design it.

I used a traditional Christmas color pallet the card stock is from Recollections the green mat is a piece of scrapbook paper I had in my stash.
The images were cut from the "Winter Woodland" Cartridge the bird at 3 inches and the oval frame at
5.2 inches. the cardinal was embossed with Devine Swirls embossing folder and outlined with red stickles, The frame was embossed with a Sizzix folder called frost I used some Martha Stewart very fine glitter on the mat as well. The sentiment was from K Andrews " Winter Wishes" set. I finished it off with a Double loop bow in red sheer ribbon from the Dollar Tree Store.

What a beautiful card, cardinals are special to me because my brother loved them and always pointed them out to me and when he passed away, they are always something I associate with him. Very very beautiful card!
