Bloggers Challenge - Color Challenge

This weeks Bloggers Challenge was to use the colors, Old Olive, Really Rust and Riding Hood Red (you could add Vanilla/Confetti/White if needed). Well....I really had all good intentions of sticking to only those colors, but I felt my card had better WOW appeal if I added some black layers..I'm much happier with it this way.



Details:
Stamps - A Cardinal Christmas, Kindred Spirits(it's stamped on the olive but doesn't show much)
Ink - Black, Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, Really Rust
Other - Aquapainter, Sponge Dauber


If you'd like to play along with this weeks challenge, simply leave your blog link on this post, or if uploading to SCS, please use keyword BC69.

Have a great weekend!

I have issues with bird sets. It really takes me some time to warm up to them. In fact I'm just starting to like the bird from "always". This bird too, is starting to grow on me. I love this color combination with it. Some of the card's I've seen the colors were not quite right. This is perfect! Thanks for helping me break out of the little box.
