Winter Wishes

Winter Wishes 2011
Hello to all my friends. I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and received all kinds of goodies from Santa. I hope everyone is looking forward to a brand New Year in 2012. Have you made your New Year resolutions yet? Starting next year what I want to do is enter my cards in more challenges. That is something I really do not like to do because to me it takes to much time and I never win anything anyways.
We have a new challenge going on at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and it is starting today it is ANYTHING GOES OR MY FAVORITE THING AND STRIPES. The challenge ends on January 3, 2012. We would love to see what you come up with. You should stop by and see what the design team has made, everyone has out done themselves again.
Winter Wishes side This is a stamp from Heartfelt Creations it is called Cardinal Pine Cone Border stamp. I also have the die cut set of the birds but I love how the birds turned out so I did not use it. I took out my Birds and Blooms Magazine and tried to copy the coloring from that but I do say the female cardinal was the hardest to color. I did use some copic marker and prisma colored pencils. Brilliance sky blue ink I sponged around the birds and over the large snowflakes that is a Martha Steward punch called sky land snowflake. The snowflakes I have on top is a punch from Punch a Bunch. Not sure if you can tell I used Smooch Illuminate color to give the sky land snowflake some shimmer. Added some Pearl Pen color light green around the half circles.
Winter Wishes close up Here is a closer look. I applied diamond glaze by Judi Kin’s, Aleene’s snow and some stickles glitter glue by Ranger color star dust to the needles. Added some stickles glitter glue color cinnamon on the pine cones. Used my Epiphany Craft and the bubble caps size #25 and #14 to add embellishments with some of the strip paper  and finished it off with some ribbon.
Thanks so much for stopping by. This is going to be the last card for 2011 so I will be back for 2012 looking forward in sharing my creations with everyone. I want to thank all my wonderful followers for taking the time to leave a comment for me. Those comments mean so much to me and I love all of you. So God Bless Everyone in the coming New Year.

Love to all, Patricia

This card is absolutely stunning and breathtaking! Love how you did the pine branches by adding some snow. And the cardinals are colored so beautifully - so realistic! The buttons are spectacular - especially matching the dp!
