Cardinal and Lace- SCH Saturday!!!

A SCH Good Morning!
That's right it is time for another challenge from SCH, this one is to make a card, layout or project using lace.
If you go here, you can view the challenge, the cards the design team has made and join in the fun. We would love to have you join in and play along with us!! Just use any SCH image and make something that uses lace and post it on the blog linking to your creation! Yep, just that easy! Show us some of your very own eye candy!!

This week I used the Cardinal image which I really love, I have been wanting to do something with this and this was the perfect opportunity! Here is the card I made for this weeks "lace" challenge.
I really love the way this bird just dresses up any card but don't you think he looks particularly handsome surrounded by lace, braid and berries. The background he is perched on is another of Tracy's images, Christmas Joy.... I just took the wording off and used the beautiful flourishes as a frame. This is what makes digitals so perfect to use, you can manipulate the size and the content 'til your little heart desires. Here are a couple more shots for you to see a closer view.
My teammates are listed on the side bar or you can go to Sugar Creek's blog to view their spectacular creations. Thanks for your visit, and for any comments you might leave. I love hearing from you!!

This card was entered in the following challenges:
Digi Doodle Challenge #31-Anything Goes
Sassy Studio Thursday - Inspired by Autumn
Meljen's Design Challenge #31-It's a 2-fer

A Sugar Creek nugget:
     for you have been my help,and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.

The Cardinal just pops off the page and he is so beautifully colored. Your bow is so pretty with just the perfect touch of red and green.
