Cardinal wreath

I made this card a little earlier in the month, but never posted it here.  It will fit nicely into The Ribbon Girl Blog's color challenge for this month, red and green:


I stamped a leafy wreath on this cream parchment cardstock, (if you look really hard you can see it underneath) and then used it to guide my placement of the punched pine fronds.  I added a cardinal stamped on red cardstock and cut out, some red gem "berries" and a favorite red and cream gingham ribbon. 

Supplies:  cream parchment and red cardstocks, Hero Arts CG215 Wreath of Leaves, LP169 Bird Trio, CL460 Joy to All, versafine onyx black ink, punched pine fronds in 2 shades of green, red gems, red and cream gingham ribbon
