The inside of the card has a little bird peeking through as well. As I didn't want a white border around my birds I fussy cut them, except for their little feet - too hard! To obtain a color close to Viva Magenta I used several red and purple Altenew inks stamped in layers - of course I used a stamp positionner for this - my trusted MISTI. As you can see it's a reddish purple, perhaps a bit darker than my little birdies...
