Dynamic Duos #67



Happy Saturday!
Here to share this week's fabulous duo at Dynamic Duos!




I created my card using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches 100th sketch challenge. Using Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral cardstock I created my card so easily.  By using primarily cardstock foro my design the sentiment and stamped flower take centre stage. A few sequins to finish it off and done!








Last nights sunset complimented this week's colours, this is a view of the sunset shining on some really cool clouds to the north right before it ducked behind the horizon!




Hope that you come and play along with us this week!
We would love to see your creations!


Cardstock:  White (Papertrey Ink) Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral (Stampin' Up)
Stamps: Surly Goodness (Verve)
Ink: Soft Canteloupe (Hero Arts)  Memento Tuxedo Blackk (Tsukineko)
Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Dies: Stitched Rectangles (Lil' Inkers)
other: sequins (Neat and Tangled)

Love, love, LOVE that new Crisp Cantaloupe, and it pairs so beautifully with Coral Calypso. Did you get the rest of the In Colors, too? I love Pistachio Pudding, but I can't get into the other three. They're too much like other colors. I'm wishing I hadn't bought them.

Debbie Henderson said...
