Whew!  That's a ton of information but I'm so glad that you made it this far!  I have a project to share with you that features the Optional Add-On, DC229 Cardinal Stamp and Cut.


That guy is so fun with his matching accessories, don't you agree?!  I stamped him with Intense Black and colored him with various alcohol markers.  

The background is a panel from the Midnight Mix Layering Paper pack.  I love the Celebration Words Stencil that I inked up with Wet Cement Shadow ink.


To add a fun pop of color, I backed the cardinal panel with a a sheet from the Pool Mix Layering Paper Pack, definitely one of my favorite paper collections.  The sentiment has been heat embossed in white on a Midnight Mix Layering panel.

That's it for me, Next up is the fabulously talented Janette!

that poor cardinal must be living in
my area of the country. He'd be
right at home with the muffs and scarf.
