Birch and Cardinal Christmas Card

What a beautiful weekend we had here in my neck of the woods!

Last weekend it was blowing so hard my husband couldn't put our outside Christmas lights up, but we got it done Saturday and the house looks so pretty!

I have a card to share that I made for this weeks challenge at Case This Sketch.

and the challenge at Creative Inspirations Paint which is Inspired By: CAS

I saw this pretty cut file at Silhouette Studio. I thought it would be perfect for this sketch. Oh.... and did I mention that I love cardinals!

Supplies used: card stock - white, grey, red; rub on - American Crafts; Pop Dots.
