Seize the Birthday # 232


The gang at the Seize the Birthday card blog is back with another fun challenge.  See if you can guess what it is from my card.

Did you guess Dichromatic?  

aka, two colors.

I began with two colors each of blue and orange cardstocks which I used to die cut the bird and the branches.  (I added in some white branches as well.)  I cut down the panel vertically so I could offset it a bit and add in a narrow orange mat before adhering it to a blue card base.  The sentiment was heat embossed in white onto blue cardstock which I then used to ground my bird.  Finally I finished it off with a trio of orange Nuvo drops.
