Cardinal Branch

Cardinal Branch 2013

 Color Me Creative is an ALL MONTH CHALLENGE! This is a different shape card for me, the size is 3.5” by 8.5” and it fits in a stand business envelop. It was fun doing one this size. The stamp I used is from Heartfelt creations and it is called cardinal pine stamp set HCPC 3348 and the sentiment I used inside is part of the set.

I started to make a swig on the side but I think it looks like a mini Christmas tree. Sponged the edges with brilliance ink color beige. Viva pearl pen color gold.

I wanted to share with you an quilted ornament I made for my niece for her Christmas tree. They are not that hard to make.

I added crystals and decorated mine different from the ones I seen on you tube.

What do you give a girl that has EVERYTHING??? So I made her wine glass crystal rings.

Don’t forget to stop by and check out the designers cards, everyone one did a fantastic job. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you did not get much snow this week end, we did get about 4 inches but it was fluffy and sure was pretty out side, very thing sparkled.

Your card is beautiful. I saw it over at CMC. I love it, love the Christmas balls but really fell in love with the Wine glass artwork. I love them, so beautiful. Thanks for always sharing your ideas, and your talent.

Dont know which to appreciate the most, the card, the ornament or the wine glass rings!! I recently saw the wine glass rings in a shop and they were charging such a steep price for it and they were not even half as pretty as yours!!
