Inspiration has come from the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place - she is having her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge. Thank you, Beccy, for the daily inspiration! Day 15 is "M" and I went with Merry (see sentiment).
I seem to use this gorgeous cardinal image every year; it's a classic and one of my favourites. It's Beccy's Place Cardinal and Holly, and believe it or not, it's a freebie! I went with the pre-coloured version and fussy-cut. The Stitched Diamond Die is from Gina Marie Designs, embossing folder Taylored Expressions Winter Flurry, and sentiment from Poppystamps.
I was inspired by Sketch 479 at Tuesday Morning Sketches:
