The Pink Elephant #44 Favortie Christmas Color Combo

Hello all! I am very excited about what I have to share with you today! It is kind of funny how this card, that I made for the Pink Elephant challenge of Favorite Christmas Color combos, came to fruition. I love love using non traditional colors on Christmas projects so I knew this challenge would be a fun one! I was leafing thru my new Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper pack when this beautiful bird print caught my eye. Perfect! Red, Teal, and Vanilla! This paper immediately brought the Pretty Perches to the front of my mind! Tying these two items together, I was off to the races creating. The funny part is that I completey finished up the center / focal point, the bird feeder, birds, dimentionals, ect before even starting to think out a layout that would work much less what cardstock I would use, ect. But, as you can see, it all worked itself out, kind of like the card made itself ... hummm...
