Merry Monday #182 - Make a Christmas card with a bird on it

This time at Merry Monday the challenge is to make a Christmas card with a bird on it.  I just happened to be making a card with a beautiful Cardinal on it, so thought I would play along.

I hope you can see the sparkle on the white panel.  I coated it with VersaMark and then embossed with Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder. While it was still wet, I added some GKD Frozen Prismatic Glitter.  I decided to spray it with a sealer just to make sure the glitter stayed put.  I sponged a blue sky and added some stenciled snow with embossing paste.  The beautiful Cardinal was illustrated by the very talented Theresa Momber and is available at Gina K. Designs.  Thanks so much for coming by to look.

The Recipe:
GKD Peace & Joy
SSS Falling Snow stencil
Delicata Golden Glitz ink
GKD Frozen Prismatic Glitter
