Christmas Cardinal

Continuing my quest to get about 70 Christmas cards done this year I have one inspired
by the color challenge over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown

So I chose to go with red, blue and black along with the gold.  I had the cardinal left from
last year's Christmas stash. It is a gold dazzles sticker that I backed with red card stock and
a tiny piece of blue behind the snowflake. I used my Stampabilities "Composer's Dream"
stamp for the plain circle die cut, inked the edges with red  ink and added it to the black
scalloped die cut. This was placed on the white embossed panel, added the cardinal  and
punched some blue snowflakes to which I added some blue gems. So, I think this is the
sixth Christmas card I've completed?  Only about 64 more to go! Thanks for taking a look!
