Last-minute Jingle Belles!

For the love of Pete, I made this card last week & forgot to post it! It's for the almost-finished 'red' prompt at Jingle Belles:


Supplies: American Crafts red mirror card stock; Wilton doily; bling/pearls from Dollarama; cardinal image recycled from greeting card front


The image is glittered along the branches - love it - and I just kept adding more sparkle :)

And in other news - the reason I am covered with dog slobber today (because you can tell!) is we added a new member to the household! Her name is Mimi, and she's a ten-month-old black Lab mix (mixed with what? not sure, but her head is GIANT). Abby needs a buddy, and after several months of searching after deciding that, we found her one. She's a moving target & hard to photograph, but this is her:


xoxo,
Jessi

Mimi looks so sweet. I'm sure she's a handful though, looking for love or at least a place to slobber on. I like your recycled greeting card in action. very nice!

And what about the feline contingent? Was approval given for this latest addition? ;)
This is a beautiful card! I was sure your recycled cardinal was a fancy purchased die cut. (You do know the SSS challenge this week is pearls?)
