FRIENDS WITH FLAIR FRIDAY

 
I made this card for one of the Color Inspiration challenges over on Papercraft's Moxie Fab blog.  The colors were an ivory, teal, purple and yellow.  So, I used ivory cardstock and used the Tim Holtz music mask with some broken china distress ink for the background.  Then I used the Worn Music stamp with Stampin Up eggplant ink to stamp on top of the masked image.  Then I used a library card from Creative Imaginations Creative Cafe collection and distressed it with some of the broken china ink, then stamped the fabulous tree image from the Growing in Unity set--LOVE this stamp set!  I used royal purple StazOn ink to stamp the tree.  I punched my bird using the Stampin Up punch and Bazzill bling paper, inking around the edges with more broken china distress ink.  I popped the bird up with foam tape.  I used the sentiment stamp from the February 2010 Kit of the Month - Nothing but Blue Skies--this had to be one of my most favorite kits of the month ever!  I used my Fiskars scalloped oval punch to punch the sentiment.  I used some yellow dew drops by The Robins Nest as accents.  The ribbon is from my craft stash.  I really struggled with this card--I don't think I do very well with color challenges.  I like to use sketches more!
