I've seen several cardinals made out of the XL 2 step bird punch from Stampin' Up. Wanted to give it a try......and since I had a sketch challenge and a color challenge of red/white/brown over on the Cricut boards, thought it would be a good opportunity. I made the cardinal from just the punch...layering to get the right colors. Used my new MS Branch punch around the page set.....used it on the middle square too. MS postage stamp punch to create the argyle diamonds in the background. Cuttlebugged with Swiss dots and pop dots...finished it off with Quickcutz sentiment....a gingham bow...and some blingy berries on the twig. This is for the get well challenge at My Sheri Crafts.....and don't forget the For the Birds challenge at Fantabulous Cricut too.
