Birds in Snow

Good afternoon everyone,
Today I'm playing along with CASology. Week 26

The clue word is so prefect for me this week. It finally stopped snowing and the snow has taken on a crunchy and shiny look. It's just beautiful out. We have a large flock of cardinals hanging out here. So this stamp from Stampin' Up Serene Silhouettes is just perfect.

My supplies are all from Stampin' Up. The colors are Real Red, Early Espresso, and Whisper White. I sponged a little Marina Mist for the sky. I also add glitter to some of the branches and along the snow lines.
The Real Red ribbon just gives it a little pop.
I hope you like my card.  Thank you for stopping by.Please stop back again soon.

Love , love this.
The first time I visited Missouri to meet my husband's family, I kept looking the entire time for Cardinals. I gave up. As the last day came and I waited for my husband to finish packing for the airport, I looked outside his mom's window and 2 red cardinals were there in the little tree just outside - as if to say, thanks for visiting, we didn't want you to leave Missouri disappointed! I will always remember this.

Ahhh...what a serene, peaceful, lovely scene! We haven't had any snow of note yet, and this card makes me wish we would! I love the way the red pops against the soft sky, and the glittery snow is beautiful! Thanks for playing at CASology this week!
