I love birds of all kinds, but I especially love cardinals! They are just so bright and beautiful!!  I made a card using an old Gina K Designs stamp from the set "First Christmas". I am entering my card in the Mix It Up Monday Stamp TV Challenge.   The title of the challenge is "In the Beginning" where we are to use one of our very first stamp sets.  First Christmas is one of my first Gina K stamp sets that I bought.  I believe it dates back to 2009. So I used the cardinal from the set and colored it with my copic markers and mounted it on some decorated papers. I finished off with some shiny red glitter foam leaves from my stash. Here's my card!

I'm also entering this card in Through the Craftroom Door Challenge
and Sketch Saturday Challenge.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great week!
