MFP October Release Day 2

Welcome to day two of Mark's Finest Papers October stamp release. The samples I have here today is from the newly released set "Greetings of the Season. This set is gorgeous and perfect for the upcoming holidays ( yikes, did I just say that!!!). For my first card I did a traditional red Cardinal. The birds were colored with prisma pencils and the rest with copic's. The ribbon and card stock is from MFP and the DP is from my leftover stash, I think it is from SU.



I just couldn't pass up doing the female Cardinal, I think she is every bit as pretty as the male!!



Here is a view of the inside of the top card.

You got me at PLAID! The cardinal just pops off that plaid background on your first card -- a beauty. And the CAS look of the pinecone card is touched off nicely with that strip of plaid. I don't do CAS often, but I may have to CASE that one!

Geri what awesome cards! I LOVE that you did both male and female (who usually gets overlooked).The plaid looks so at home on the pinecone card. :-)

Yippee! Happy to see you stamping again! Hope you are feeling much better. Your cards are so pretty! The cardinal is our state bird, so I'm a bit partial to cardinal cards! Beautifully done, my friend! Have a great Wednesday...
