Speedy's Friends Challenge #27

Hi there! This week at Speedy's Friends, Vicki is challenging us to make a holiday card. Which is perfect as I really need to get mine going.


The image for my card is from "Greetings of the Season" by Mark's Finest Papers. We don't have Cardinals around here but we do have beautiful Blue Jays, so I went with that.
I colored the bird with copic's . Card stock and ribbon are from MFP and the Basic Grey DP is also from MFP.
Hope you can join us and Remember, for every 50 entries we get there is a winner of a stamp set from MFP!! If you use MFP stamps, you are entered twice and you can enter more than once.

Have a great week-end and thanks for stopping by
