Cardinal Card.......

    I like birds and have always enjoyed bird feeders but unfortunately, the only birds we attract  where I live are called "Sky Rats"...AKA as the Pigeon.  I even have spikes on the roof of my house!
 So, a paper Cardinal will have to do for now.    This card makes me think those pretty photos of a bright red Cardinal sitting on a bush in the snow. 

 Here's how I made it:
50 States Cartridge- Cardinal
Christmas Solutions- Evergreen bush
Paper Doll Dress Up- Snow Border
Embellishments: Red & White twine, wooden button and swirls embossing folder. 
Paper-Kraft paper, patterned cardstock , white glitter paper.

Linking this with:

Whimsical Designs- Border

Thanks for Looking!

  11. Like your Cardinal Card. We have lots of Chipping Sparrows & Doves at this time of yr. Did see a couple Cardinals but they do not stay long & are skittish. Put up a new birdfeeder that has 2 compartments to hold suet. Good idea until the squirrels get the suet. Another thing is that the suet fell on the ground & my dog ate it. I will not say how I figured out he atre the suet but I'm sure you can figure it out. Heehee. Have a nice day.
