Kristina’s Color Challenge #35

I wanted to make a thank you card for my good friend Scott — he treated J and I to dinner at Kerbey Lane Cafe yesterday, and Kristina’s color challenge was just the ticket to get started!  The leaves under the flower instantly reminded me of the cherry trees we saw on our hike, and that made me think of the pretty little warblers we saw flitting around…

Thanks again Scott — I owe you lunch at Bombay Bistro.  And thanks to Kristina for another great color challenge, too.

[Edited to add a closeup.]

Supplies:  DesignBlock Thanks, DesignBlock Poinsettia + Birds (I cut out the birds), mocha and chocolate notecards, and pearls by Hero Arts. Leaf die cut by Sizzix (used in my cuttlebug).  Yellow patterned paper by Bo Bunny.  Ribbon by Making Memories. Brown marker (Marvy) to dot the birds’ eyes.
