Joy To The World

It is several years since I have made a card using the serviette and cling wrap 
technique, but when I saw a pack of serviettes with this gorgeous cardinal, I
knew I had to revisit it. If you have never seen this technique, I am
sure you would find many tutorials on the internet.

I added a dot of glossy accents to the cardinals eye, and a few dots of platinum
Stickles on the background and in the centre of the poinsettia. The sentiment 
was a freebie that came with a magazine.

A closer look at my handmade poinsettia and assorted greenery.
