Purple birdies

I was given a link to another challenge blog earlier today, and guess what happened... I decided to celebrate the fact that I like it there with a submission for their recent challenge lol :)
The place is called The Play Date Cafe, and they're having a colour combo this week, of grey, blue, purple and white (PDCC05).
Now, blue and purple can look very stylish together, but I learnt that it's so easy to go overboard with them and end up with a card that looks too busy, and just not right. I think the trick with these two is to make one of them a dominant colour, and use the other one for highlighting/ complimenting the first one. This way they won't be competing :)
Anyway, here's my card:


The image with birds is a digi freebie, but excuse my lazy brain - I forgot where it came from...
I used a magnified part of the branch to create a subtle pattern on the grey cardstock. The birds are paper-pieced, and the sentiment is also computer-generated.
Because of these cute creatures, the card also goes to the Animal Antics challenge at Simon Says blog, as my second entry.
I wanted to keep this card simple and stylish, I hope I succeeded :)
Thank you so much for visiting, happy crafting!
