Dynamic Duos #73 and Seize he Sketch #5


Happy World Card Making Day!
What are your plans for today?




Time for this week's new colour duo at Dynamic Duos!
This week is a bold and sassy colour duo, hope you play along.




For my card I used the new sketch at Seize the Sketch and gave it a counterclockwise turn.  Really loving the rich vibrant colours against the white.  I stamped the chevron on white and fussy cut, then created a banner the same width that I embossed the sentimentn on. I will also be submitting this to Seize the Sketch #5.

This is just fabulous. I did not care for that sketch until I saw what you did with it. I love the bold colors against the white, and the embossed white sentiment is perfect.

Fabulous take on the sketch Tracey! I love the CASness with that cute sentiment! Thank you so much for the sweet comment on my blog :) I used Island Indigo for sponging my clouds. I tend to like the tealish colors of blues. I've tried a lot of different inks and I do like SU the best. Have a wonderful Sunday! :)
