A Female Cardinal

Good morning! I did this card last night for the color challenge at stamp TV, hosted by Karen.
We are to use Ivory, champagne (Lt. gold) and burgundy.
I used Asela Hopkins set " First Christmas" from Gina K Designs.
I used Gina Pure Luxury card stock Cranberry Tart, Good as Gold and Pure Ivory.
I colored the image in Prisma colored pencils, added some ribbon.
I did a female cardinal instead of the red male, share the glory kind of thing! This is my version of the female and I think she is just as pretty as the male.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
