RED birds

This top card is my second for today.......I was not altogether happy with the first one below.

I liked the idea of RED and white, but the background didn't work for me.

This one is better, I think. The same theme and set of stamps, and includes piercing for the StampinB's challenge too, and also uses the new Scroll EF and CB.

Check out the other card, and PLMK what you think.

Don't tell me that flowers and snowflakes don't go together! I had intended to make a Christmas card, but those branches and flowers just jumped out at me. Or maybe it was the other way around. At any rate, here's my card for the Free For All today.

The cardinal comes from Mark's Finest Papers. The set is called Tweet Blessings.

Have a wonderful day today, and a great weekend. DS and family are coming for dinner tonight, and I'm goiing to try to stay on my diet!
