Cardinal Christmas Wishes

Just home from a busy day at work. My share for today is a pretty card that I made for my Stamp-a-stack at the end of November. I used the "Beauty of the Season" stamp set, I think this stamp set is so stunning that it doesn't need much else to make it stand out! 
I stamped the largest image using the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured the Bird, branch and berries in with Blendabilities markers. I diecut using the Labels Framelits Dies. I cut a piece of Garden Green and embossed with the Woodgrain design, then cut a piece of the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper - I really like the striped one. However, I did use a variety of the patterns and they all looked great (you can see them below). I wrapped some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine twice around the entire card - right where the two papers join to seemlessly connect them! Then to finish, I stamped the "Christmas Wishes" sentiment on a 1/2" strip of Whisper White and flagged the ends with my hexagon punch... oh, how I love that punch! I just love that you only need one stamp set to create a bunch of stunning holiday cards! I hope you like my card, and have yourself a terrific weekend!
