Trendy Twine~Cardinal Card and Tin

Hello crafty friends! Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  I decorated a
Candy Tin with a cardinal theme and made a card to match.
The Candy Tin holds a lot of goodies!  To decorate it, I wrapped Candy Cane Trendy Twine around the top edge of the tin.  I used Christmas washi tape around the bottom edge.  The top was decorated using papers from DCWV's Merry Memories stack and a bow of Candy Cane Trendy Twine.  I added the top decoration to a belly band of cream jute ribbon.
The card that coordinates is a file from SVG Attic's Sending Christmas Cheer set.  I wanted to keep the cardinal fairly simple, so I added a full bow of Candy Cane Trendy Twine on the evergreen branches.  The fun part is that this card has a hole behind the cardinal's wing, through which I added a bit of twine.  It can then be hung on a tree as an ornament!

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
