Happy bird-day! - Color Dare 107

What a great color combo Riley came up with this week for The Color Dare!  I am so glad to be on this great design team! 

So Saffron
Marina Mist
Certainly Celery

Here's what I came up with:

Bird was cut at 3.75" from Straight from the Nest

You can't see from the picture but the So Saffron is a soft paisley print which I thought went well with the Paisley embossing on the little bird.

Card Base: SU  Marina Mist 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  Designer papers:  So Saffron & Certainly Celery layer and trimmed at 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:   So Saffron, White, Chocolate Chip
Ink:  Marina Mist & Chocolate Chip
Stamps:   SU Pun Fun & PTI Honey Bees (little flowers by sentiment)
Accessories: SU Chocolate Chip marker, Cuttlebug & Perfectly Paisley and SU Square Lattice embossing folders , Cricut & Straight from the Nest cartridge, PTI Blueberry Sky Swiss Dot ribbon (not a perfect match to Marina Mist but pretty close!),  Corner Rounder
