Saw a cardinal today...

...and after having a lousy day it was a real treat.

The base card is white linen card stock with the top half layered with grey and white snowflake patterned paper.
On a separate piece of white linen card stock I stamped the tree from Lawn Fawn's "Joy To The Woods" set with Distress hickory smoke ink before trimming it out and applying it to the card front.
Using StazOn jet black ink I stamped the verse from the same set.
On another piece of the white linen card stock I stamped the cardinal from the same set using Distress antique linen ink and colored it using Prisma pencils.
After trimming out the cardinal I applied him to the card front.

Lovely cheery Cardinal for a bleak winter's day (it's horrid and rainy here in the UK). Fabulous card. Thanks for joining us on this week's CC&S challenge.
