just a note - ICS96 & PPC-CC

Ok, you may recognize this lovely little birdie. I think it's my new favorite stamp. Wings of Friendship is a RETIRED Stampin' Up! set. I stamped in Early Espresso and heat embossed. Then I used my ink pads in Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango, and Always Artichoke with my aqua painter to color the image. I stamped the single flower from the same set in Only Orange then colored with the Tangerine Tango. The sheet music dp as is the flourish dp in the back. The ribbon dp is the flip side of the sheet music. I had some little punched tags and I stamped just a note from the All Year Cheer III set, then I distressed it with some Early Espresso ink.
This card was created using the color combo from Picture Perfect Creations - Color Combo#44 - Tempting Turquoise, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip (didn't have any so I used Early Espresso instead), and Tangerine Tango. It was designed using Inspirational Card Sketch#96. Both were interesting challenges for me. The colors, at first didn't look like they would play well together. Guess I was wrong. The sketch presented some problems when it came to punching the Acanthus Leaf border. But I think I worked it all out.
