The current ODBD challenge is a lovely sketch, which I've tied in with today's WT challenge to use piercing. I had to omit the sentiment from the sketch, it wasn't working with my clean look.
A2 Cryogen White base. Base layer is white card stamped with the ODBD snowflake background in Versamark, embossed, and then I used wrinkle free distress with Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky and Iced Spruce.I spayed it with some Glimmer Mist for added sparkle - but it's so gray and overcast here than I can't really capture it well.
For the image I stamped the cardinal ornament on watercolour paper, coloured with Couleur d'Art pencils and then sponged with Antique Linen, Scattered Straw and Broken China. Vertical banner srip is more Cryogen White embossed with snowflakes, and the image panel is layered onto a scalloped circle which I pierced.

You did two beautiful bird card today, Sabrina, but this is my favorite. One can tell that you observe birds because of your accurate coloring of them. Love the female as well as the male cardinals, Love the snowflake DP to go with the wintery feeling of your image panel.
