Take Flight

I thought I would enter another quick card for The Play Date Cafe colour challenge, I enjoyed working with the colours so much I decided to have another go.  My dad is in hospital so I needed something to take my mind off things.
This is another set of stamps that I have not pulled out of the packet LOL so I thought it was about time I pulled them out of their plastic.
A simple card to create but I am quite pleased with the results.
A reminder of the colour palette for this weeks challenge.  Thanks for stopping by, until the next time, take care.  Tracy x x
