Merry Bird for Jingle Belles and Dynamic Duos

My youngest sons basketball season ended on Friday so I have more crafting time again woohoooo! Since school started most of my time has been spent driving from one place to another, I am sure many of you can relate!

To enjoy my free afternoon today I played along with Jingle Belles and Dynamic Duos. I haven't played along with Dynamic Duos in a while but as soon as I saw this weeks color duo I knew I had to try and get a card made.

This week at Jingle Belles they have a sketch, brought to us by Allison from Stampin' When I Can. I visit Allison's blog all the time so I was happy to see her as a guest star at JB! I admit, the sketch perplexed me for a bit but I decided to just keep it simple. The only thing I omitted was the 3 objects from the top...I tried a few things but just couldn't settle on any element I liked.

The colors for Dynamic Duos is Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple. I'm almost through my 2nd pack of Gumball Green, I've been using that card stock like crazy, but this was the first time I've broken into the Raspberry Ripple. I don't know why, because its a very pretty color!

Make sure you head over to both of these blogs to check out their challenges and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Four Seasons, More Merry Messages
Paper: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Very Vanilla, Be of Good Cheer DSP
Ink: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple
Accessories: Big Shot, Northern Flurry EF, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, sponge, dimensionals
