Sometimes just have to step out of your comfort zone like I did on this card with these unexpected colorful birdhouses.  I would never have thought to put these colors together and boy, do they pop!  I have fallen in love with this Flying Home stamp set lately.  It has great nature images that are fun and versatile.  You can see how I used lots of texture on this card with the same stamp set, yet got an entirely different look.

Don’t you just love the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock as a card base?  It’s such a great color.  The piece of Petal Passion Designer Series Paper with the stripe pattern behind the images offset the sharpness and anchors it on the card.

I stamped it with the Black Archival stamp pad on Whisper White cardstock and then colored with the Stampin’ Write Markers in Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Crumb Cake.  I cut the image out with the Layering Square framelits and added another layer behind it in Berry Burst cardstock to really have the strong contrast.

The textures at the bottom with the Burlap Ribbon, Berry Burst Ribbon added a lot, but the black sentiment of Sunshine Wishes framelits in Basic Black cardstock really sent it home.

This Flying Home stamp set is retiring soon, so get it here while you still can.
