Winter Wings

Good Morning!

Today's card will be entered into the Stamp TV Challenge, Christmas Comes Early and the Simon Says Monday Challenge, Anything Goes!

The stamp sets I used are Winter Wings and Winter Wonderland by Gina K Designs.  I stamped a border of pine needles first, then the bird, then the sentiment.  The pine needles were colored with Copic Markers, as were the bird and branch images, and then I added a little white glitter to the outside edges to mimic snow, you can actually see some it in the photo....ha....that's a first!  A bit of ribbon for contrast and a bunch of 'randomly' tossed red sequins were added to fill the negative space....too much white open space! 
I do love Red Cardinals, they are my most favorite bird evaaaaaaah!  ;)
Thanks for coming by!
