Cardz TV Christmas In July-#1

Mary of Cardz TV is doing her yearly Christmas in July challenges. I've been so busy this weekend, I only got the chance to get in my crafty room after supper tonight to make a card for the challenge. So this is what a thrown together as quickly as possible card looks like. I used the Winter Frolic cartridge and cut the birdcage with birds on page 58 at 4 inches. Using my Gypsy Girl to design my card, I did some hiding on the ribbon and holly to get the right colors. In the booklet it has the birds a light green. Now, I haven't seen birds other than those of the parrot family in green. So I cut mine white to make them look like doves. All of the cuts were made from scraps from my ever growing scrap bin. The bg designer paper is Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby)-Christmas Holly. The gemstones are also Paper Studio. The sentiment is from the Holly Jolly stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I finished up my card by doing some doodling with my white gelly roll pen and then popping up the birdcage. Hope y'all like my Christmas card!!!! :)
