Christmas Cardinal

Hope you had a good weekend. Mine was a bit on the sad side for I attended my brother in law's memorial. He was such a wonderful person and it is hard to see someone get sick and pass away so soon. He was greatly blessed with a lovely wife and a fantastic son. He lived his life with a testimonial to God and it carried through until his last days.

Now onto my card for today. It is for the MMSC24 challenge. Whoa, that was a hard sketch for me to come up with what to do. I decided to turn it on it's side.

I wanted to make it a Christmas theme, which you will see more of. I used the Spellbinder to create the basic shapes and the rest was coloring and a little bling. I did not get a chance to complete the inside....will do that later.

Let me know what you think?

DP - Provo Craft
Image - Dream Impressions (not sure but I believe they may be out of business)
Others: Spellbinder dies, Brads, Silk flowers, Prismacolor markers, Martha Stewart branch punch

All things are heaven sent.
