So festive and full of joy! Love the darker version as well. For some reason though, I'm wanting to see some texture or highlights in the bird when it appears in the gold, but don't have that reaction with it in the green. They're both wonderful, though!

This is amazing, Melanie!! Both colorways are beautiful, so you only have to make one more, since this will be picked!

This turned to color before my very eyes! I love both versions- I think the bird stands out better in the gray/gold version. That one seems more elegant, and this one seems more whimsical. Always good to have alternate colorways in your pocket- I have a feeling you'll be needing them! ;)
