Christmas Cardinal

Hey everyone, hope you are having a good day!  Today I have a Christmas card that I would like to share with you.
 I used the Christmas Joy stamp set from Sweet N Sassy stamps which is now back in stock. I colored the image with copics and sponged around the cardinal with baja ink while still in the nestie. I added some frosted lace stickles to the tree branch and pine cone. The edges of the dp were stitched with my sewing machine.  I used the mojo Monday sketch this week for my layout which was perfect since I wanted to use this round image. Wow, it sure has been a long time since I have played along with that challenge! It was a great sketch to come back with too.

 Here is a closer look
