Hi, Daria! These are amazing! I love how stunning your gorgeous red cardinal is against the white embossed background. The red jewels are perfect! ♥

Wow! I think I watched you color this little birdie--it's beautiful and I love the EF you used! Also, just enjoyed the last hour looking at all your projects over the years!

Wow! These are awesome! Your coloring is beautiful. I love the embossing too, I'll have to look for that folder. I didn't realize Sakura glue pen was strong enough for rhinestones. Good to know! I love that pen <3 Congrats on 7 cards made! Way to go!

Beautiful card! I love the white embossed background with the red bird, it really stands out. The coloring on the bird is wonderful, I can't believe you did that with colored pencils, nice work! TFS :)

Cindi, I'm grateful for your challenge. I've been working on these cards ever since you announced it, and now I have my first seven cards for Christmas 2013.

I copied these cards from some that Nora S. made. I can't give you a link to Nora's cards since she sent hers out before photographing them so they are not in the gallery. I told her that I had been waiting for her to post them so I could CASE them, and she told me how she had made them. My cards are based upon what I remember from seeing hers and what I could remember of her instructions. Nora's cards were probably bigger than mine, and I think she used red matting.
