Playing with colors

It is a peaceful weekend and I finally get to my craft space for some fun!

I have been playing with a background stamp and various distress ink combos.  No kidding, just one background stamp and distress inks and I've made a number of cards already.  Let's look at this first one:


The card was made based on the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:


I got the feather dies from My Favorite Things long time ago and I can't believe it I'm using it for the first time!  Feathers may not be as popular as before but I like them just the same. :)

This is absolutely the first time I am using such a color combo - Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon and Seedless Preserves.  Pretty unusual combo, don't you think?  I wanted to pick an analogous color combo so I've tried various ones.  This one is the brightest one and I think it is best for a birthday card.  My friend's birthday falls in July and I think these vibrant colors will brighten her day!

I'm also linking up my card to:
