Trees and Birdies

The ColourQ challenge this week has similar colours to Picture Perfect Creations which was handy as I already had half of what I needed on my desk when I went to make my card!  :)
Supplies: CS: SU & Bazzill; Stamps: Unity & PTI; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black & SU Baja Breeze
I decided to ink up another Unity stamp and thought this stand of trees would be perfect for the different greens in the challenge.  I thought the little blue "hello" went well with the little blue birdies and the line frame was inspired by PTI's Make It Monday technique.  (I know the only PTI element is the hello but I might just post it over there anyway...). Unity's current challenge is to incorporate birds into your project and even though my birds are tiny they're Unity and they're there so I will add this to their gallery too!  :)
Off to watch the wedding!  Are you watching?
