Deck the Halls - Cardinal

Hiya folks!

Today I have a glittery creation to share with you, using images and die cuts from Heartfelt Creations.  Have you seen the sneak peaks of the new Window Scene collection?  If not check out the Heartfelt Creations blog, there's one up today.  It's a fabulous set, and I've got a few cards made with it but can't share them with you yet, you'll have to be patient!  In the interim, here is a festive cardinal card:

Lately I've been using a lot of glitter, it seems to be my favourite embellishment at the moment--guess we go in phases with these things LOL!

I'm looking forward to Christmas this year, I get the whole last two weeks off of December from work, and plan to stay home and craft for the whole two weeks---are we going to start making bets on how many cards I will create over the two weeks?
