Hello Crafters,

   This week at the challenge was up to three cards, use craft color and red, use a bird, and layers. Must us something that can be purchased  This was my take!     

What a crooked picture - I must really be off balance - Well anyway I had fun making this card I just love chubby little birds and the "JOY" is just so elegant. I started with a craft card base and built from there.
I stamped the card with pine-cone stamp added a mesh border, and the pine needles border at the bottom. I layered the sentiment in the center adding the bird perched in the leaves. I added some elements and then stamped another sentiment on the inside and was finished.
