Card Making, Challenges, Hero Arts

Cardinal (the bird)

Cardinals are one of my favorite birds – probably because they live here in my neighborhood (they don’t migrate).┬áThere are several kinds of cardinals. The type in my neighborhood are Northern Cardinals. Male and female cardinals look different. Male cardinals are typically bright red overall, with a black ring around the beak. Female cardinals are usually predominately brown, with bright red bills and a red crest on the top of their heads (figures the male gets all the beautiful color).

I used the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches for today’s card.

The cardinal and sentiment are from Hero Arts February 2018 Kit and the other items are from my stash.

I have challenged myself to keep using this Hero Arts Kit to create cards. One negative note about this particular kit is that I asked Hero Arts if they could tell me the names of all the birds. They couldn’t. There are 11 birds in the kit and I can only identify three. You would think the artist would know the names of the birds.

In addition to Tuesday Morning Sketches I would like to participate in 2 Crafty Critters Crazies.

Thanks for stopping by.
