STAMPorations warm colours

I am back today with my next guest designer card for the new STAMPlorations challenge. For the month of July the theme is "warm summer colours".
 My card was inspired by my recent holiday in Portugal. We loved riding on the vintage trams around Lisbon, such an amazing city. It was a cool way to get out of the heat.

 and explore the narrow streets
So back to the challenge, which I really hope you will join in with.
This is the theme 

and this is the optional sketch.

and here is the link giving you all the details and where you can enter your projects.

I decided to work with the theme and sketch.
I used the words  from 
the cup of roses stamp available here
and the birds and spread your wings sentiment from the Trendy Birds set available here

This is what I got up to:
I used some bright sunny distress inks to create a border of ink across my card and stamped into it with the words from the cup of roses set.

I also added some inks to a piece of card to die cut from.
I cut out these circles from it and stamped on the trendy birds.
I stamped and die cut one of the sentiments.

Here is my finished card
