Vintage birthday hydrangeas

Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.  It has been so hot here that I spent most of the afternoon in the craft room instead of doing some chores outside!  Here is a card that I made for the Weekend Sketch challenge #86.  I really like the colours together and like how the card turned out.  I chose my image of hydrangeas from a Lockhart stamp that I purchased probably 2 months ago and have not made the time to ink up, until today.  I stamped the image on SU very vanilla with basic gray ink and coloured with Copics, see all of them in their own pic!  I really love how you can change the brightness and tone of colours with the neutrals, like the warm grays that I used.  I decided to make the berries in this image a red colour to match with the papers I selected from K & Co "Wild Raspberry".  The image was cut with a labels 3 Nestability and layered onto the dp and and Baja Blue.  Thanks for taking a peek and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
