Season's Greetings, with Bling! for Eureka Stamps

It's Monday, and time for a new challenge at Eureka Stamps. The theme this week is "Add some bling".
I've been trying to make a Christmas card here and there, and I used a beautiful digi from Eureka Stamps to create this one.  

I colored the Season's Greetings Cardinal Card with Tim Holtz distress markers and a blending pen, using watercolor paper.  The card stock and glitter trim is from Close To My Heart. The bling is from my stash.
Cardinals make me happy.  I love their song, and their beautiful colors.  We had 5 of them at our bird feeder a couple days ago and it still makes me smile whenever I think of it.  And, I smile knowing I have another Christmas card to add to the stack! 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments -- Christmas in September
DeCosse's Dynamite Doodles -- 12 months of Christmas link up
Winter Wonderland -- Layer it Up
Christmas Card Challenges -- ATG
Hiding in my craft room -- any holiday
