Dynamic Duos #85 & Retro Sketch #96 - Backyard Basics

New Years greetings,

The year is in full swing and I am ready for it! It is so nice to get holidays behind and get a fresh start and with that a chance to try new things. Today I am entering the Dynamic Duo challenge #85 and to go with that I am pairing it with Retro Sketch challenge # 96. The color combo speaks loud to my heart. Green and Yellow are the official color of Brazil, my country of origin and just so happens that I live in Wisconsin and the colors for the football team is also Green and Yellow. How could I pass on this challenge? I used the Backyard Basics stamp set stamped in watercolor paper and hand painted. I cut the image using the Backyard Basic framelit collection. The butterflies were cut using the Beautiful Wings Embossilts. What do you think? Please do share some love.

Happy Stamping!
