Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday

Hello friends! It's Heartfelt Creations inspiration Wednesday and today I'm sharing a very simple to construct card.
I let the design paper from the 'Merry and Bright collection' do most of the work for me. I love the image of the cardinal and the blue reminds me of a clear, crisp winter day. I also love metallic gold paper and use it quite often because of the sparkle and shine it adds. And don't you love the font for 'Merry Christmas'? Perfect!
