Hi! FTHS is running a wonderful sketch challenge this week and I picked the older image of red cardinal which I'd printed months ago and haven't used until now. I made an experiment with grey-dark red combination and I think it looks great (to be honest, I found an inspiration on Christmas Card challenge blog).
I colored the image with professional watercolors and smudged the edges with red and black chalks. I cut the frames with Nellie's frame dies and poinsettias with Mariane Designs cutting die set. For the background I used the designer paper from Docrafts. I embellished the card with red glass gems.
I WON TOP3 at Christmas Card challenge :-)
