Feathered Quote

I have always loved this passage from Emily Dickinson, "Hope is the thing with feathers". As I have been creating a lot bird cards lately, I thought this quote and a nod to something else with feathers would make a cute pairing.

I just got this paper. Isn't it yummy? It's from Daisy D's. I realized that what drew me to the paper was the wonderful color combination. To match the colors, I just turned to my Stampin Up papers. Works everytime! I used Real Red, Elegant Eggplant and Summer Sun to match the hues in the paper.

The difficult part of this card was deciding on the ink. I tried the purple but it didn't show enough contrast. Strangely, it did not immediately occur to me to use the red. I think I will use this combination again. I love the red against this warm yellow paper.
