Song of the Cardinal

Happy weekend friends!  Today's card was made for two challenges.
The Inspiration Challenge over on Split Coast was the Web Store - Madewell - a sister store to J Crew
I was inspired by this jacket with red and white birds on it.  The cardinal is one of my favorite birds -  we have several cardinal families that come to feed at the feeders in our yard.  I love the males bright red color, especially against the snow in the winter, the females green/brown and the lovely crowns on their heads!
I'm also entering this in this weeks CASology Cue Card - Song
My background music stamp is from Waltzingmouse.  The cute cardinal is a Tim Holtz Alterations Movers and Shapers Die.

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Musical Backgrounds
Paper: white, pure poppy - PTI
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Copics - YR23, 100, foam tape, bird die - Tim Holtz Alterations - Movers & Shapers Mini Cardinal and Poinsettia
