Use three papers at Pennys Paper Crafty challenge this week

Good morning all

I'm back with my second DT card of the day - this time for 

Pennys Paper Crafty challenge

the theme this week is 

use at least 3 patterned papers

I decided to make yet another Christmas card for the stash

using Winter Cardinal from Sparkle n Sprinkle
available here 

I had only ever seen photographs of the cardinal birds until last year when I was delighted to see some of these lovely birds nesting in the tree right at the edge of the lake that our garden overlooks in our holiday home in Florida.  They really were a sight to behold, the flashes of red caught my eye at first as the little birds darted in and out of the tree in the mornings - here in England we have our native robin as our Christmas bird - but I have to say I really was quite taken with these stunningly coloured red birds.  I think it was just the males with the bright red feathers - the females being more browny beige with red markings but very pretty little birds just the same.

We have three great sponsors at Penny's this week



who are both offering their fab digi stamps as prizes - so well worth playing along with us
This is what I did....
