Cardinal Christmas

     It's the first Monday in July and that means it's time for the newest monthly challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps.  In honor of the fact that Jan's is running a 25% off sale on all the Christmas Sets for the entire month of July, I've done a card using one of the newest sets called "Christmas Cardinals."  There are 21 Christmas sets altogether!

Colors from Color My Heart Color Dare.

Colored with ProMarkers
Stickles used on the snow
Cut with QuicKutz die
Sheer ribbon has glitter added
Red card base embossed w "Linen" EF
2 layer CAS design

     Come play with us this month.  The challenge runs until Sunday, August 2, and you can enter up to five times.  The theme is always Anything Goes and if you use a JDS image on your project, your entry will be put into a separate draw which increases your chance of winning by quite a lot.  :-D

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

I think this is one of my favourite of Jan's stamps - it's so beautifully elegant. The red background picks up those cardinals perfectly.
