I'm pretty pleased with how this card turned out. I used a color combination straight from the Color Coach. If you don't have one of these you need one! I used Pistachio Pudding, Smoky Slate, Strawberry Slush.
The layout is from the current Create with Connie and Mary challenge. That angled back panel had me twitching for a bit since it's against my natural instincts to have everything nice and straight but I got over it and went with it.
The tree and birds were inked up with Smoky Slate and then I used my blender pen to take off the ink from one bird and used the Strawberry Slush marker to re-color it.
The bird panel is popped up with dimensionals on a slightly larger circle that was pierced around the edge.
I added pearls in graduated sizes along the left side and used a bit of the retired In Color stretch trim to bring a little bit more Strawberry Slush to the card.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
