Almost the same as my robin card from last week, I liked the layout I used on it so a few minor changes in the addition of an image from The Best of La Pashe 2012 and fussy cutting the cardinal.
 I used Promarkers again but found colouring this stamp much more difficult using only shades of red and some black/grey around the face. I looked at several photographs of cardinals to help me with the shading.
Many thanks to those who visit and continue to leave comments I really appreciate each one.

I was thinking when I saw this image that I wouldn't be able to color this one myself, but you did a really great job with the shading. When coloring birds I too look up a photo on the web. I do love your white cards, nice touch here adding the white panels onto red ones that pick up the color of the cardinal so beautifully.
