And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Snuggly Wishes

Hello friends!  Earlier this week I posted a card for the 
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog using this week's Splitcoaststampers Sketch and I'm finally getting around to posting it here.

Creative Nugget:  Two of the adorable birds from the For the Birds stamp set were colored with Copic Markers to look like a cardinal and a bluebird and cut with a matching die.  A Splash Watercolor Background using different blue Distress and Distress Oxide inks was created on the circle behind the birds.  Snowdrifts were masked and sponged on the front panel which was then embossed with a TH Texture Fade embossing folder.  A faux wood strip created by applying Oxide inks directly to the paper was added to the right side of the card to look like the trunk of a tree.   The sentiment was embossed and a few sequins and Sparkle Powder were added to finish the card.  
This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend!
