Delicious Doodles Challenge #19 - Winter

Happy Friday everyone,
I hope you all have something fun planned for the weekend.
Today's card is for a new challenge at Delicious Doodles and our team would like to see "Wintery" projects.   I've coloured this beautiful digi called "Red Cardinal" and it can be found here

It's another center step card that fits into a 6x6 envelope. The side panels have been embossed using a Cuttlebug folder and the center is SU Square Lattice embossing folder.   The evergreen boughs are a Marianne Creatables with Hero Arts Prisma Glitter added for bling.   To prevent the glitter from rubbing off, I tried spraying the finished diecut with hairspray.....and it seemed to work..for now anyway.  White seambinding used for the bow, tied using my Bow-Easy.

I hope to enter the following challenges:
Stamp n doodles Challenge - Anything Goes
Always Something Creative Challenge #46 - Winter
Christmas All Year Round January Challenge
Christmas at Sweet Stampin'Challenge - Cold & Frosty
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge #16 - Ribbon
Whimsy Stamps Challenge #55 - Fancy Edges
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge 12 - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine Challenge #69 - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #252 - Diamonds are Forever

Thanks so much for stopping by.
