MFW-Creative card challenge week

Over at Moxie Fab World this week, there are going to be challenges every day from a Special issue of Paper Crafts Magazine "75 Creative Card Challenges". Check it out, why don't you?


Today we are to Create a paper crafted card that uses 
10 or more embellishment.

Here is a Christmas card I made for a friend which just happens to have 10 pearl snow flakes amongst the birch trees  :o)


This stamp image from Hampton Art has two birds on the tree branches, but I wanted to make hand cut red birds out of that red glitter paper in the background and added the small pearls on top of the snowflakes falling.  I cut the white glitter snow banks and layered them on top.

I appreciate you stopping by today.
