Cookie Challenge #59


It's time for another challenge at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie. Just  be inspired by this amazing cookie creation.  The prize this time is sponsored by Sherry Baldy digi stamps.

I love cardinals, so this was a fun challenge for me. (Despite that, I don't really own a lot of cardinal images, but luckily I had this perfect image someone sent me.)  The bird is colored in pencils and matted on metallic gold paper, with a tartan printed paper and gold ribbon for accents.

My card is for these challenges:
Holly Jolly Christmas #86 -- anything goes Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra  -- anything goes Christmas
CRAFT #394 -- Christmas
Word Art Wednesday #260 -- anything goes
Kraftin Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday -- anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -- use patterned paper


  1. I love that plaid paper across the top and the pops of gold! Pretty card!

  2. Just love the image. I've got a soft spot for cardinals, but after searching lots I don't own a single one!! Need to rectify that in the new year me thinks lol!!
    Love the tartan paper across the top, perfect finish to a gorgeous make
