Serene Birds for PPA210 Color Challenge

Good Morning! Hope you all had a fantastic 4th of July weekend and are ready for the start of a new week.
Over at Pals Paper Arts, there’s a color challenge this week with this color palette:

PPA210: Basic Gray | Lost Lagoon | Pool Party

The card I’m sharing with you today started with the basic gray stamped image from Serene Silhouettes and was originally intended to be a sympathy card. The colors are so tranquil and could easily be used for that, as well as many other occasions. The birds were colored with an aqua painter in lost lagoon.
As I assembled the layers for the bird image, my mind wandered in another direction and I decided to make this into a card for a friend I haven’t seen recently. To incorporate the challenge colors while keeping the card light, I framed the birds in basic gray from the neutrals dsp pack, then in lost lagoon, and added a pool party ribbon.
A quick swipe of basic gray, some hearts stamped repeatedly in lost lagoon with the Work of Art stamp set, and the sentiment from Thoughts and Prayers complete the card.
Who are you thinking of today? Why not create a quick card to send off and let them know you’re thinking of them!
Happy Stamping!
