Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop Day 2



Today's featured sets are A Walk In The Woods and Greetings Of The Season.
My first card is a birdhouse using the cardinal image and the Winter Wishes sentiment, both from Greetings Of The Season. Love this beautiful bird!
My second card uses one of the trees from A Walk In The Woods stamped in dark green and colored with an olive Copic marker and shaded with various inks.
