Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge

My card today is for the current challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.  This challenge is "Anything Goes."  I chose to make another Christmas card.  I have had this lovely cardinal set for sometime and have been waiting for the perfect time to ink it up.  It comes with a coordinating die.  I inked the image twice and used only the branches to fill in the oval frame.  I added icicle Stickles for some shimmer.  As you can see, I just can't get enough of that sparkle and shine for Christmas cards.
