Cardinal Valentine

Hi guys!   Today I have a card to share that I just fell in love with.   I wanted to play along with a few challenges, so I pulled out the Winnie & Walter sets Happiest of Holidays with Evelin T Designs and Scenery: The Party Hangover along with some sequins and set to work!

I began by stamping and embossing the sentiment (from W&W The Big, the Bold and the Happy) in the lower left corner of my focal panel.  Next, I stamped the garland from Scenery: The Party Hangover, criss-crossing it here and there.   I stamped the birdhouse and the bird on my panel, but I also stamped and fussy cut each element individually as well so that I could pop up the birdhouse with foam adhesive.

I colored everything in with Copics, and mounted the panel onto red cardstock and some woodgrain patterned paper from Doodlebug.   A few Pretty Pink Posh sequins here and there along the garland finish the card!   

I hope you've enjoyed my card!   It's going to be a Valentine for my husband....I couldn't help but use the pink and!  After all, it is for Valentine's Day!
