Colored with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. This sketch begs for something in the upper left hand corner. I don't have appropriate colored or sized embellishments, so I made faux dew drops out of Crystal Effects.
I had to look in my bird book to learn how to color the cardinal. Cardinals do not live in the Western US, so I have never seen one, except in pictures.

Well you and the bird book did a great job! I love to see Cardinals... they are so bright, especially in the snow! But I am still partial to the little Chickadee! Love this card though... great job! You'll have to make a trip east and see these pretty birds some day!
