Dynamic Duos Challenge No. 52

Dyanmic Duos is celebrating their ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

In celebration this week’s challenge is to create a project using one of their PAST COLOUR COMBOS. I opted to use the color combo from DD#13 Early Espresso & Crumb Cake.

My all time favorite stamp is Definitely Decorative Avian Toile. It is truly elegant, and I have used it many times, but never for an easel card. This week I decided to combine all three, the color challenge, my favorite stamp and easel card. Below is what I came up with. Love the result!

I can’t wait to see your take on this challenge. Happy Anniversary to the Dynamic Duos Team, and thank you for your continued artistic inspiration!

Happy Crafting!

Dynamic Duos Challenge No. 51

My mother-in-law’s birthday is fast approaching, and looking for a little inspiration I turned to The Dynamic Duos challenge this week. Their challenge features the colors Daffodil Delight and Baja Breeze. Below is where inspiration carried me.

I am pretty pleased with this card and would love to see your interpretations on this color combination. 

Happy Crafting!
