I love all the white on white cards I see which I haven't been able to conquer yet; however, I did stop myself from adding a ton more to this card. I wanted to keep it CAS to highlight the cardinal as the focal point. This beautiful felt cardinal was given to me by my fellow punchie, Bearzi! Still usin' 'em Bearzi.
I used the framing taught on Kitty's blog, inserted a sparkly background in the back of the framing and popped up this gorgeous caradinal on top. Since there wasn't much room for a sentiment, I added a small tag which says "merry".
I was going to stop there, but I just had to add the snowflakes on the corners with little silver ones in the center. I wanted to add red to them, but was trying to stay with the white theme.
I added a sparkly EK Success tree border to the inside of the card.
Thanks so much for taking a look.
PT: 6 (including tree border punch on the inside of card)

Oh, wow.....this is gorgeous! I think I have that cardinal. Bet I need to use it after seeing this card. Gosh, I was just thinking of making a white on white and adding a pop of some color. You've inspired me even more.
Now what to do, you know I'm a bird lover and want this card, too. :-)

Wow you rocked that Cardinal. I need a "Cardinal" Christmas card for my BIL. I send him different one every year. I love that sparkle behind the focal point. It's just the right amount of bling not to overpower. You did good girlfriend on this one.
