Inkspiration Colour Challenge #18

Thanks very much for all the lovely comments and emails I've received on my Canvas Art.  I love and appreciate them all.
Today is Friday and it's the day I show you my card for the Inkspiration Challenges - we have a colour challenge for this week:
I think these colours could work for many styles of card, masculine or pretty.  So here's what I've come up with:
I've used the very fun Good Friend set together with the Cheep Talk set.  Both work together very well.
I've started with a base card in Very Vanilla, then I've layered some Mellow Moss and striped Ruby Red paper that was in my stash!
For the main image, I've used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp up the bird.  I've also added a wing in the striped Ruby Red paper.
I've added some wide grosgrain ribbon in the Brocade Blue and tied a button with twine to one end.  When I first completed this card, I didn't have the wide lace.  But I wasn't really happy with it and felt it needed something extra.  So I've added some lace - most of my cards seem to have that addition these days.
The little sentiment is from the same stamp set.  Here's a closer look at the details:

Now you've seen my inspiration - if you want to play along, be sure to link your card at Makeesha's website so everyone can check out your creation.   Don't forget to view all the gorgeous creativity from her DT too - I'm sure they will be fabulous:
Thanks for poping by and have a wonderful weekend.
