12 Days of Holiday Projects - Day 4!

It's Day 4 of 12 and it's also Texas Tuesday! This card isn't very Texasy. Not at all, really. But the stamps are from Texana Designs, so that counts! It's not overly Christmasy either. Wow I'm just breaking all the rules!

I used the Texana Cardinal, but masked off the word "cardinal" from the stamp. The Holiday Spirit message is Texana too. I cut around the top of the head and also the tail before cutting him out with my circle die. (Does everyone know how to do that? If you need to see it just let me know!) :-) The leaves are also cut out & popped up, then coated with Glossy Accents for a little something extra - can't really tell in the photo, though.

I only colored the cardinal because I was playing along with the Play Date Cafe challenge, which is a color splash this week. A splash of maroon!

The sketch is Jen del Muro's FINAL SFYTT! *sniff*

Oh and speaking of The Play Date Cafe - I made the Fab Four last week! YAY!! So exciting!

Now head on over and check out what my blogging friends came up with today...
