Without further jibber-jabber, my card today is for two challenges from Splitcoaststampers. The first is the Sketch Challenge 399 from earlier this week as shown below. Love this one...very versatile. The second challenge is for the Inspirational Challenge where I chose this cardinal porcelain figurine from the selected website, Wind & Weather; the figurine is also shown below.
Obviously I substituted the dogwood for holly as I wanted to get started on my holiday cards. I added get a touch of crystal effects on the cardinal to give it a polished look. Thanks for stopping over today & I look forward to being more active in our stamping community & I am anxious to spend some time on your blogs seeing your wonderful creations.
