Sometimes, I love the act of stamping. Pushing the stamp into the ink, then transferring the image onto the paper. over and over. repeat.
ColorBox has a beautiful rainbow of colors...I used Glacier Ice for the card, and alternating by using 100% color and partial color for the background, then the little bird on a separate piece of paper, with a piece of scrap cardstock to emphasis and draw the eye towards the bird and message.
