The entries in last weeks challenge were so wonderfully vibrant with the touch of pink in the cards. Congratulations to the winners. Looking forward to your entries for this week.
Now we have beautiful native birds here in New Zealand but nothing as bright as the Cardinal. Wonderful! A fabulous image you have chosen Lesley. So perfect to inspire a great 'bird' Christmas card for this Merry Monday Challenge.
I kept the red bird because it compliments the greens and I wanted to stay with traditionalish Christmas colours.
The side trim is cut from a piece of card embossed with the Cuttlebug Wicker Weave folder. I know I will use this often because I love the embossed pointy bits, and, one embossed A2 card makes lots of trim strips. :-) You just need to remember to adjust the height of your card to match the trim (if you want complete points). Ask me how I know this!! :-0
