Christmas in July - Cardinal

Well, today's the last Thursday of the month, so it's time for another Christmas card.  Actually, I've shown several Christmas cards this month.  I wanted to make at least 8 Christmas cards a month so I wouldn't have a big crunch at Christmas time.  I was getting behind, so lately I've made quite a few of them.

Today's focal was stamped with white pigment ink on red glimmer paper.  I then colored it with blue chalk.  I figured it would look pretty good on a blue background and I've been wanting to use up my printed card bases, so I chose this one.  In my quest to use up stash I have on hand, I came across this ribbon - seemed to set it off just right.

Cheryl: at first the red white and blue color combo struck me as odd for Christmas, but you made it work! I really like your focal piece!
