Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #13

I had some time today to make a card for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #13. Another fun color combo!

Here is my card:

I love the quilted look to this card and I think it would make the cutest baby cards. Unfortunately, I don't need baby cards very often so I will have to adapt it to other kinds of cards. I'm actually on a kick right now and a few of the next cards I have to post are "quilted" in some way. This is probably my favorite little bird from Bird Watching Additions and I think he looks so lonely sitting on that branch all by himself!
Thanks for stopping by!
