A Cardinal for May Rudolph Days!!

 Hello crafty peeps! I finally got my card finished for Rudolph Days, I'm not as late as usual though. It's been a hectic week, first the Victoria day weekend I didn't go to the cottage until the Monday holiday as I had a major leak in the plumbing, I had water but not running in the cottage. I don't mind roughing it but I then found out because I had the phone disconnected I had no internet either. Plumber has been called internet provider has been called now it's a waiting game. This weekend I wasn't going down as for some reason we are back to "almost" winter (I caved and put the furnace back on)  The break will give me more time to organize my crafting supplies to take with me next trip.  On with my card.

The stamp I used is from Rubber Stampede and I'm sure I bought it at Michaels a long time ago, it's one of my favourite cardinal stamps, I made a 5 1/4 inch square vanilla base. The patterned paper is Cabin Fever from Carta Bella, and the plaid layer is a left over scrap from the Gnome slimline card. Both the image and the plaid are backed with a square die cut in red. The patterned paper is backed with a green layer. With scraps of red and green I added a poinsettia
Question, what is your opinion on the plaid and floral on the same card?

Close up of the main image.

Finished the inside with a wood block Hero Arts sentiment that has to be close to 20 years old, and a red off cut  and a small poinsettia. 

I'm entering this in:

Thanks for visiting today and have a crafty week. P.S. there is still time to get your card for the challenge done.

My favourite cardinal stamp too - and also a long-ago purchase from Michaels. Love how he is such a festive red. Great mix of papers, too!
