Beautiful Day Cardinal

  I love cardinals and blue jays and am blessed to live in an area where I see them both quite regularily. I love the colours on both birds and was lucky enough to find a red feather outside of my work place a few months ago. I have never found a red feather, they are always white so when I was found this Cardinal stamp in my High Hopes Rubber Stamps coloured stamp stash, I knew I had to use it on a card I can send to bring someone a smile. 

I coloured this stamp awhile ago when I was transitioning from Spectrum Noir markers to Copic markers. I cut it out using a square pleated lace die from Gina Marie Designs and cut a card stock piece to put behind it. I created the paper layers with patterned paper from My Favorite Things and Honey Bee. I added a few layered fish tail banners to add some interest and texture. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using a circle die. Glitter dots finish off my card.
