Christmas, Thanksgiving and Punches!

More swap cards.  The first one is a paper pieced card featuring the SU! XL bird punch.  The petals are actually wing pieces for the bird.  The branches are from the same punch and the center flowers are from a fiskars set.  I sponged the center of the flowers- or the points of the wings, depending on your perspective - to highlight them and add depth before assembling the flowers.

The next two are from a Bundle of Cards swap.  I did a Christmas card for the first group and a Thanksgiving card for the second.  The image of the Christmas card is from Lovely as a Tree from SU!  To me it is the "go to" set that can be used for any and all occasions.  I wanted to catch the feel of a winter's night with the moon bleaching out all the color down to shadows and the glitter of the light off the snow. 

The final card is also from the bundle swap, for Thanksgiving.  The Autumn set was the first set from SU! I ever got...and I still love it.  It makes me think of a pile of fall leaves that you just HAVE to jump in.  :)
