Cardinals are probably my favorite bird. If I could get another look at an Indigo Bunting then I might change my mind, but anyway for this card I used A Christmas Cardinal from Stampin Ups winter mini. It was watercolored using reinkers and an aquapainter. The base is Ruby Red and the then the next layer is Always Artichoke stamped with the mistletoe image. I used the ticket corner punch on this layer and the black layer under the cardinal Black Gingham ribbon tops it all off. Hope you enjoy!

To You and Yours in "07" Colors.

I had a little fun making this card yesterday. I pulled out the SU in colors from 2007, Cranberry Crisp and True Thyme. I loved these colors for Christmas and the designer paper that matched was fantastic. I used the Top Note die in my Cuttlebug and started from there. I placed the dp on the cardstock before running it thought and then tied a little bit of true time sticked ribbon around. Added a brad and a little dazzling diamonds and it was done.
