PPA28 - Color Challenge - A French Song Bird

Ppa28 color challenge 

This week's PPA challenge is to use the above colors. Well, this card definitely has a lot going on. I have been wanting to use the little bird in the cage from the Happy Moments set. I mistakenly ordered the stamp set in french but decided to keep it and use the french greetings to mix things up a bit. Well, my little french bird needed some french decor and what is more appropriate than a little toile? French decor usually has lots of layers so I added lots of elements to this card such as the epoxy brad layered with the filigree brad on top of the ribbon, on top of some scallops - whew! Prior to making this card, I had just a moment to practice on the piano and thought this bird needed some notes to sing so I added some notes to his little greeting. 

Paper - whisper white, black, melon mambo and pretty in pink card stock
Stamps - Belle Toile, Happy Moments
Ink - basic black, pretty in pink, melon mambo
Accessories - filigree and epoxy brads, whisper white satin ribbon, dimensionals, scallop trim border punch, scallop dies
