Tuesday Throwdown

This will be our last Challenge for 2011 at Tuesday Throwdown. Our theme this week is for someone special. Our sponsor My Grafico gave us these lovely images to work with. I chose the cardinal since it seems to be one of the traditional Christmas icons.

Water colored the bird and holly and part of the flourish. I started to do the flourish in stickes but changed mid stream! Some My minds eye paper made a quiet background along with some stitching. The cutouts are all Spellbinders and the punched edge is MS.
Hope you all have a fabulous Christmas!!

Beautiful card, Davi! I really like how you combined all the different shapes from your punches to create your layout. The stitching and those sweet gems on your greeting piece are wonderful touches. In case I don't get another chance to say it, Merry Christmas to you and your family! :-)
