I love the cardinal!

To answer the question you asked on my blog - Ink would be temporary, henna is made from a plant and creates a semi permanent image. The stain penetrates your skin and lasts for up to 6 weeks. they used to color hair with it.

Fantastic fall card; love everything about this. My favorite detail is the "out of the box" branch. Thanks for sharing =)

This card reminds me of the old fashioned portraits with the exception that it is in color. I love the texture and small details.
