Robin Christmas card

Hi Everyone, my card today is a "practice" card, as I want to make a batch of quick cards for Christmas. I'm quite pleased with it, but I could do quicker I think. I'm not good at CAS cards, I always think they require "something" else.
It's one to add to the others I've made, but still have a long way to go and panic mode is setting in! I really don't want to be last minute as I usually am. Better get going I hear you say LOL.

Very pretty card with that bird image. I like the design with the red panel partially covering the white and the embossing looks great too!

It's beautiful Faith. What a lovely image of the little Robin. The white embossed background is a great compliment to the red border and I like how you only did it partially.

Beautiful design, Faith. The red panel covering only part of the background is really effective. Super image too. xx

That's gorgeous, Faith! I understand about always wanting to add something more but will you believe me if I tell you that beautiful red ribbon against the embossing is more than sufficient? Love it. :-D

Gorgeous Faith, really festive and a lovely image. I’m quite well on with my cards - I have to be this year as we go on holiday on 7 December so they have to be posted before we go.

Fabulous card Faith! I love the embossing pattern, and the pops of red with the paper and the bow bring so much festive fun to the card. The show stopper for me is definitely that image, I absolutely adore bird images and especially for a holiday card! What a wonderful card to send out to friends and family! hugs :)
