Dynamic Duos Challenge #1 - Two Birds on a Branch

Hello Friends,
Welcome to the first ever Dynamic Duo's Colour Challenge. Each week we will have two colours for you to use to create a card, scrapbook page, craft or digital project. Only the two colours, otherwise known as "The Dynamic Duo", may be used for your project. Neutrals such as black, white, vanilla, skin colours and Kraft are also welcome.  Our challenge colours this week are Pool Party and Lucky Limeade suggested by Sharla in our Facebook Contest.  For winning Sharla gets to join the "Dynamo" Design Team as a Guest Designer this week. A new weekly challenge will be issued each Saturday with a closing date the following Thursday at Noon (PDT).
So onto my card, I created the clouds using a Scallop Circle punch, sponging around the shape.  Created the Birds Nest using a Small and Large Oval Punch.  For the branch and leaves I masked around the area.  The flowers where coloured using Pool Party stamp pad, removing the Pool Party colour on the stems with a Blender Pen and using my Lucky Limeade Markers to colour the leaves and stem and then Huffing and Puffing on the stamp to moisten it again before stamping.  The Seam Binding Ribbon was dyed using a Lucky Limeade Re-Inker and tied with an In Colour Brad.
