Merry Monday #219 with a Bird!

This week's challenge is asking for a bird to be on the card.
Sue is our Merry maker this week.
I love the PTI Winter Woods Bird, but then I love cardinals!
My "sprig" is from Spruce & Sprigs, also PTI.
I look forward to seeing your card in the gallery!
thanks for joining us!
Heart Hugs, friends!
