Christmas Cardinals Scene

I made a scene  using Jan's Digital Christmas Cardinals set and the Tree set for this card. I am always loving cardinals so I just had to own this one. Again I used the pre-colored images.


I took the  left gate and joined it to the right gate digital stamp to create more of a fence line. Then I added the sentiment above the gate. But I felt it needed something else so I printed out some of the trees and fussy cut them and placed them in the foreground of the scene. The finishing touch was to add a slight amount of blue brushing at the top for the sky. I also added a white panel inside. The scene and inside panel were cut with a Spellbinder rounded corner rectangle die.

I am entering this in Jan's Digitals July 2020 challenge-Anything Goes.

The internet worked in the middle of the night so I got some emails removed from my inbox but I am afraid I did not stop to comment. Today the internet is working better as it is not as humid and therefore I am going to post while I can. I hope all had a great weekend. We  had a wonderful one as we got to see some family again. I hope that was a good thing to do as I always worry about someone getting sick. So far we have lucked out.

Well thanks for visiting and so sorry if I cannot always return the comments to your blogs.

God bless,
Verna

I love the tranquil scene you've created for your lovely card, Verna. I'd love to see a cardinal IRL, they look so bright and colourful. xx

Verna, this is just beautiful!!! You did such a fabulous job creating this scene, I thought Jan had done it herself! Seriously well done!!! Brilliant idea to add the trees to the scene too. I'm so glad you shared this with us and I really hope you will come back soon to play along again. And don't forget that Jan is having a sale on all her Christmas sets this month!!!

Oh, this is so pretty. I'm loving all those cardinals and the decorated gateposts. Don't worry about commenting. Sometimes if I am busy I will scroll through the blogs but haven't got time to comment. I hate that but at least I get to see everyone's great work.
