My backyard is full of cardinals from early spring until late summer and occasionally I get to see one or two during the winter months. There is one particular occasion that I fondly remember of when my children were little. A big snow storm blew through the night, and in the morning when I drew up the shade in my daughter’s bedroom my heart was full as the tree outside her window had four cardinals just sitting on the white covered limbs of the tree. I just stood there in awe of the sight before me. Every time I see a cardinal it reminds of those serene moments I spent looking out her window.
For my final week as Guest Designer over at DeeDee’s Digis I chose this Cardinal for my card.
That wooden holly embellishment is covering up a boo boo. I added the blue ribbon to coordinate with the sponged background around the Cardinal. A Snowflake Embossing Folder was used as the layer which was adhered to a black mat.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

What a fun card, and such a treasured memory that this image brought to mind! I’m sure that sight of 4 cardinals in the snow would have held me spellbound as well! I like the holly accent and pretty ribbon you added to this card! So pretty!
