CTD#211 - Happy Bird-day

It's time for the Color Throwdown #211!  Our hostess this week is Wanda who has some wonderful colors for us to create with.
For my card I was missing a few of the colors for this week's challenge so I substituted for what I had.  I didn't have Summer Starfruit or Sahara Sand so I opted for Kiwi Kiss and Natural Ivory instead.  The colors that Wanda chose could be used in so many ways as you'll see by the design team samples.  You could keep it serene like the inspiration photo or play it up and use the colors to make a fun Halloween, fall or in my case a birthday card.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Bitty Bird & Bitty Bird Additions along with the coordinating dies and Think Big Favorites #12 for my sentiment.
Supplies: Think Big Favorites #12, Bitty Bird, Bitty Bird Additions + dies, My Mind's Eye designer paper, Simple Stripes Impressions Plate, Mat Stack die, Heart border die, Ribbon, Scallop border punch, Buttons, Bakers twine, Foam tape.
