Christmas Card Club Challenge #22 - A Cardinal / Christmas Bird.

Hi Crafters,

I'm popping in a day early as usual to share my Christmas Card Club card because I have another DT post for tomorrow. I hope the ladies on the team won't mind.

This week it is Mary's turn to chose the theme and she has given us 'A Cardinal or Christmas Bird'. 
I have come up with this lovely picture of two cardinals and thought this fitted perfectly.

Beautiful scene with the brilliant birds against the snowscape. Love the way you've framed the scene within the red doily. Also loving the paper combinations and the design layout. We actually saw one of the yellow tinged cardinals once at our feeder - but normally the males are the brilliant red and the females much duller - reddish brown. TFS & Hugs.

Good to hear your stall went well Lorraine, but I knew it would.
I love this traditional coloured Christmas cards, red cardinals seem to be getting more and more popular, I'd love to see one in real life. Shucks it will mean another trip to the States! ;)

Happy crafting, hugs Erika. x
