Winter cardinal

It was Mary's turn to choose the theme for this fortnight's CCC challenge and she asked us to include a cardinal or another winter bird.

For my card I've used Sparkle n sprinkle 'winter cardinal' colouring with spectrum noir pens.

I followed the sketch for Atlantic hearts 69:
I used a piece of My Mind's Eye 'snowed in' winter papers for the background and for the punched out snowflakes, overlaying a piece of Papermania 'at Christmas time' vellum - I was able to glue this underneath the image, the sentiment and the snowflakes to secure the vellum into place.

This is also for:
