Here is my card for today's release -  I fell totally in love with the Christmas Cardinal from Stamp Art Designs by Kathryn!!



First again I need to give a huge shout out to Tina Wenke - Her new papers are so beautiful and they are perfect for this image are they not? Make sure to visit her new site and see them ok? (www.tinawenke.com)  Now back to this beautiful image. I will be honest here... I colored on this for over an hour. I kept going back and adding more shading, adding more snow, adding more stickles to the berries. Then after all of that I decided to pop the bird... so I printed me a second one and colored the bird all over again cut it out and pop dotted it over the first bird. 

You can see the popping here - 


I also die cut out a little wooden fence and added a little snow to it as well. Then I added the very last piece of my favorite ribbon. I need to find more of that ribbon.... 

Here is the inside with matching piece of the Tina Wenke Papers -
