This card is a bit of a cheater. It's not actually a Christmas card but it certainly has a holiday appearance. My Mom's 79th birthday is today and it certainly is a wintry time of year to celebrate a birthday. Since she lives in Kentucky, I wanted to use a cardinal theme. This cardinal is from one of my favorite companies Northwoods Rubber Stamps. I also wanted to try the chalkboard technique which is so popular now. Paper used is from the Simon Says Stamp December 2012 kit. The little cardinal was punched with my Martha Stewart cardinal punch. Happy birthday, Mom!!!
