Different for me

I'm not usually a flowers and birds sort of crafter..
throw in the butterflies, and I'm completely out of my element,
but I wanted to try to make these all work together!
I always like to play along with the challenges over at Pretty Pink Posh
where they host a 10 minute craft dash.

See the card next to the logo, I think I did a pretty good job of matching up these colore!!
My card took me 8:01 to create!
The paper with the bird was a leftover piece from my project from yesterday.
At the last minute I decided to color in the bird...
I used my spice marmalade Distress stain, and a small paint brush.
The little birdies on the top are wood veneers that I dabbed up with the same distress stain.
And on the side behind the seeds scrap that is some fun washi tape...
Can you tell I'm loving this new washi I have with the butterflies on it????!!!

I'll be sending this fun card to my mom! 
She's been starting to make her own cards, and I want to encourage her, and give
her lots of examples of what she could make too!
