Sparkle and Shine Challenge 22

Hi there! I'm excited to post my second card as a Sparkle and Shine design team member. Winter is in full force here. In fact, my back yard looks a lot like the inspiration photo! We have snow on the ground, ice on the trees and ocassionally, a cardinal makes an appearance.

Here is my interpretation of the inspiration photo:

I realized after working on this card that I don't own any cardinal stamps. That is going to change. The mascot of the high school my kids will attend (once they're old enough) is a cardinal. I am going to need a cardinal stamp in the future!

In the meantime, I had to make do with what I had. I found this bird ephemera buried in my stash. It is from a really old Crate Paper kit. The bird was white, so I colored it red with Copic markers and then added some Wink of Stella for a little sparkle. The fence is a die from Paper Sweeties and the white "snow" hill is a die from Simon Says Stamp.

Here is the supply list:

Please visit my design team mates' blogs for more inspiration and then enter the challenge for a chance to win a $15 gift card to the online stare Right at Home, and be asked to join us next month as our Guest Designer. 

Good luck and happy crafting!
