DD #55 Bold and Sassy Colours



Happy Saturday and welcome to this week Dynamic Duos Challenge!




I was playing with my Silhouette again for this card and created my own dies to use with my Verve Good Friends stamp set.  Stampin Up cardstock cuts beautifully with it. After I die cut one of each of the three sizes of flowers I did some tone on tone stamping.  We really hope that you join us in the fun this week, you have until Thursday noon (PST) to enter the challenge.




Cardstock:  Raspbery Ripple, Wisteria Wonder (Stampin' Up)
Stamps: Good Friends (Verve) Stylish Sentiments Birthday (Papertrey Ink)
Ink:   Scarlet Jewel, WinterWisteria (PTI)
Dies: custom dut files (Silhouette) Stitched Mats (Lil' Inkers)
other: sequins, foam tape
