Cutie Pie DT Card - No Patterned Paper

It's time for a new challenge at Cutie Pie, this month our theme is "No Patterned Paper" and we're sponsored by 2 Cute Ink, who kindly gave the DT some some adorable image to play with.  I chose to use Winter Cardinal, colouring him with Promarkers and highlighting the image with Glamour Dust and Snow Balls from Anna Marie Designs.  I also added a couple of tiny seed beads for the bird's eyes, and a few sequins to bring a bit of extra sparkle to the background.  As usual, the red colouring hasn't photographed well, the shading looks much more three dimensional in reality.
 I decided to go for traditional Christmas colours for this card, using two shades of green card and some bright red card for matting, from The Art of Craft, along with a sentiment from Craftwork Cards, the edges of which I inked with red ink.
I used a lovely Sue Wilson die to create the holly border at the top of the card, to which I added some red gems as berries.
To further embellish, I added some pretty gingham ribbon with a matching double bow.
