Cardinal Christmas

     Having done 30 Christmas cards with images from Beccy's Place over the month of November, here I am starting December with another of her images.  Beccy is sponsoring our challenge this month at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies where our theme is always "Anything Goes with a Critter."  All you need to do is feature a creature on your project and you can enter it.

     I've used one of Beccy's gorgeous cardinals, this one called Cardinal and Holly, and you can grab it as a freebie if you click on the image name above.

I used red and green from the colors at Color My Heart.

Colored with ProMarkers
Cut with Memory Box die
Sentiment from Beccy's cut with Sizzix die

Wide, sheer ribbon for bow

     I hope you're going to come play in our challenge this month.  You have until the 25th of the month to link up your entries.  We love being inspired by you but the team probably won't be commenting this month because we give them time off so they can get ready for their own holiday celebrations.  Merry Christmas to all.  NanaConnie

Love a cardinal card. Your coloring is great. I like the die cuts you used to set off the image and the sentiment. The red bow is dramatic.

NanaConnie I don't know how you make all the wonderful cards that you do! You must never sleep! I love birds, especially cardinals ~ they always look so regal in the trees and in the middle of winter they look neon red! Your card is beautiful!
