Winter Wishes



Here is the card that I made for the Just Us Girls Wild Card Challenge.  You had to use a photo on your card/creation.  I choose to use a winter photo that I took last January during an ice storm.  Everything outside was covered in snow and ice and it was so pretty!  I cropped and printed the photo, and added it to my white card base that had been embossed.  I added a layer of brown cardstock behind the photo and attached the whole thing to the card with stampin' dimensionals.  The red bird is from the Sentiments stamp set by American Crafts.  I stamped the bird with red ink and carefully cut him out and attached him with stampin' dimensionals.  Some red ribbon, a brown button with red embroidery floss and a sentiment that I created on the computer finished off this card. 

Winter wishes to you...
