Colourful Chickadee

They have a bold and sassy color combination for this week’s challenge at Dynamic Duos Challenge (#5). The colours are "real red and island indigo".

I used a few different die cutters to create this card:

  • Chickadee by Dee’s Distinctively for the bird 
  • Branch by Memory Box
  • Three different Spellbinders Nestabilities for layering
  • Tim Holtz Flora cutter
I found the red and white brad and the polka dot red and white ribbon in my stash and added them to finish the card, Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
