Both cards are beautiful Jan. I love these stamp sets. I got the bundle, but the cardinal is on back order. (I'm glad though, because that means a lot of people bought it, and that's good for ODBD)!

I love your sparkly paper, and the background on the cardinal card is gorgeous.

I guess I'm really excited about cardinals today because they are very rare here. I've had one pair for a year now, and this morning I looked out the window and there were two pairs out there! The two males don't like each other though, and are constantly chasing each other. The two females are better behaved. I'm so glad I started buying fancy bird seed. :-)

Wow. . .both are so bright and festive. . and so detailed! Love your coloring and choice of papers!! Glittery, shimmery works of art! Blessings!

Hope to see you there.
