inky paws challenge - color challenge

good morning and happy friday to everyone!

i'm super excited to share my card for the current inky paws challenge for newton's nook! 
this time it's a color challenge, and the colors are so pretty and springy!!!

i had a hard time making this card, despite the beautiful colors! just one of those days i guess! i was attempting to try a new techinique, and it fell!

oh well! here it is!

i used distress inks to add the challenge colors in the background. and then i stamped the 'thanks' banner from winged wishes over top! i added some wink of stella glitter and glossy accents to the banner to make it stand out a little! 

the sweet little bird is from snow day! i fussy cut him out of patterned paper and then added a hint of color to his cheeks and beak! he's popped up for dimension!

the main panel of the card is also popped up over strips of washi tape on the sides of the card! add a few splatters of mist and the card is done! 

i hope you can play along in this inky paws challenge! it's so pretty! i know i'll be playing along again, too!!
