Warmest Wishes

I made this quick and simple card for the October Rudolph Day challenge.  I'm also entering this card into the Merry Monday 'Birds' challenge, Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge 'Embossing, 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown 'Embossng' challenge, Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Use a Sentiment', and Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes'.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Image: Upcycled Chistmas card
Embossing: Creative Expressions 'Sparkle Squares'
Card: Red mirri and white silk

I embossed the white silk card, trimmed it slightly before layering it onto red mirri and attaching it to the card front.  The lovely robin image was already glittered, so I trimmed it into a square, layered it onto red mirri and attached it to the card front.  The sentiment was also from the same card, this was trimmed, layered onto red mirri and attached to the card front with Pinflair glue.
