Always Find a Song

Hello everyone.  This week the Shopping Our Stash challenge is to use black, white, and one other color.
This card began with layering a black and white floral paper and a piece of black cardstock on top of a black card base.

I stamped Altenew's Cardinal using Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks.  The sentiment and the branch from the cardinal set were stamped in Black Soot.

The cardinal was covered in Glossy Accents and the card was finished with Liquid Pearl dots.

I think this is a very pretty color combination, I hope you liked it too. Please stop by the Shopping Our Stash challenge to get inspired by the excellent work posted there.
I am also posting this project to the Creative With Stamps April challenge "Clean and Simple".
If you like cardinals as much as I do, here are a few links you might be interested in:
