Color Throwdown #380

Hi everyone!  I saw the Color Throwdown colors this week and had to play!  I love red, gray, and white!
When I saw the knitted throws (or scarves) I  thought about the Sweater Stitch background stamp I just realized I had.  I stamped a panel of white cardstock with smoky slate ink and the background stamp.  Loved it!  Then I saw this Winter Woods stamp set in my box of stamps I haven't used and decided to ink up the cardinal to get the red in the card.  I perched him on a gray branch, stamped the sentiment and added a ribbon and some twine to the tag.  I of course added some sequins!  I think this would make a pretty Christmas card too!
The current Just Us Girls challenge is to add a tag to your card.  The challenge runs through tomorrow at 9:00 pm est so you still have time to enter!
Thanks for stopping by!
