Merry Monday #78



Here is Merry Monday's inspiration photo:




I love Cardinals - with their bright red feathers they always stand out. 

So I put little cardinals on my Christmas card.


I used a background that I had already left over from a prior challenge, which I did not like - I spritzed ti with Mr. Huey, but fits this card very well. The birch trees are by Impression Obsession and the sentiment is Martha Stewart. I popped it up on foam dots.

I am also submitting this to 

CHNC extra challenge - anything Christmas
Die Cut Divas - Animals/ Fall
Simon Says - use rubber or clear stamp

Wer hätte das gedacht, ich habs doch noch bis nach oben geschafft und mich tapfer durch all deine wunderbaren Werke gewälzt :)
Du hast bestimmt schon bemerkt, dass mir schön langsam die Worte ausgehen und hier kann ich einfach nur noch "wow" sagen! Die Stanze ist wieder sooo schön und die zwei roten Piepmätze sind ein echter Blickfang! Auch farblich ist hier alles perfekt!
Ich wünsche dir und deiner Familie ein erholsames Wochenende
Bis bald Rosi
