This is why I love color challenges!  I would never have thought to use these colors today and I don't use any of these colors on a regular basis.  But it was so much fun to "branch" out!  (Get it...bird card, branch?!  Haha. 😂)  Here are the colors to use!

And here are some more on the details of the card.  I did a bit of "generational" stamping.  Thats where you stamp multiple times, without re-inking.  It gives you different tones of the same color and can add a lot of depth.  I used it on the musical notes, nest, and leaves...

I also used a Blending Brush on the background (started with Basic White cardstock) with Pale Papaya ink.  I wanted that color, but wanted the cardstock elements I added behind the focal piece to subtly pop.  So...same tone, just a lighter color because I blended ink.  Can also get a bit of an ombre by doing this. 

All in all...I had a lot of fun making this card and using these colors!  What are you going to make?! I can't wait to see!  Head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog now to check out the rest!  And let me know if you have any questions!  Would love to help you with your papercrafting needs...including helping getting your hands on these fabulous Stampin' Up! products!
