We have sponsors who have donated generous prizes for each challenge and since we are doing this blog hop style, there are hidden prizes along the way. The good news is you will have 3 full weeks to complete all the challenges and blog hops. There will also be a grand prize that you will be eligible for if you complete all the challenges! You can see the Grand Prize and add you name to the inlinkz here once your complete all four of the challenges.

 
PSC53D: The Challenge/Twist: create a card with a sentiment for the occasion of your choice. Include the sentiment on the front. / Include a bird or a bloom on your card or a combination of both.

Vickie (that's me!)

I chose to make a pink and red Christmas card using a cardinal from Close To My Heart and a poinsettia frame from Floppy Latte Designs that I got at Stitchy Bear Stamps.com.


I'm also sharing this card with the following challenges:
Christmas Challenge with Sketches #45 - the lovely sketch I used
Creative Card Crew Challenge #21 - Birds
Papertake Weekly - All Creatures Great and Small
Jingle Belles - Pink Christmas
The Stamp Man Challenge - October - Butterflies, birds, bees
