Oh frappe! Day 7 already and I have not linked up a single card, yet. Being in Europe, the robin is my typical Christmas bird.

Amazing how many of us haven't seen cardinals (I haven't either). Love the layout and colours of your card Beccy. I'm a couple of days behind at the moment but hope to make some progress later this evening when I get home from work.

Beautiful cardinal creation here Beccy - My mom loves cardinals and has tons of cardinal items in here apartment including dishes, tablecloths -etc. so it is cardinal time at Christmas ... thanks for the challenge!

This feathered friend is so beautifully colored. I love all the layers in your card. The black layers really make the colors pop! Love the button embellishments too. And it's awesome with the shapes in 3s. Three circles, three flags and 3 rectangles. Great design!

Fabulous card Beccy, love your mix of dp... that is one of the things I find hard to do. I also love the black mats. Your coloring is always amazing and I could look at your cardinal all day and without fear that it will fly away.

FABULOUS card Beccy!
LOVE your cardinal and layered design ... wish there was an "F" word for scraplifting as I'm pretty sure there is going to be some scraplifting in my crafty future!
... I have just come in from feeding our little feathered friends ... it is such a joy to watch them bathe and happily bring their growing families for treats :)
