Dynamic Duos....Birthday Wishes


Happy Saturday Peeps!!

It is time for a new color challenge on the Dynamic Duos Blog.

This week is a Soft and Subtle pallet:

I am using a couple of items from the upcoming Stampin Up SAB flyer.
The flowers and leaves on here are from the Bloomin Marvelous stamp set and I also used a piece from the Happy Hello Simply Sent Card Kit.
The piece on the bottom of the card is cut from an envelope from the kit. I guess it was kinda a waste of an envelope, but I wanted to use this paper on my card and I can salvage the envelope with some other DSP, at another time.
I also used the new Honeycomb EF on the top half of the card, I LOVE this EF. 


I matted the bottom piece with some white card stock, I just laid the yellow piece onto some white and traced the design and hand cut it out. I distressed the edges of the white a bit to hide the imperfect hand cut piece. 
I used some retired whisper white satin ribbon across the two pieces. 


Be sure and head on over the the Dynamic Duos Blog and see what the rest of the team did with these colors! Sure hope you can play along!

HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Vicki

I was wondering how you did that pattern on the yellow...an envelope, brilliant. Your cards are always show stoppers and this one is no different. Beautiful!

Absolutely gorgeous Vicki! Love every...single...thing on this card!! The oval embossed frame is perfect for the sentiment benner and the fussy cut flowers and leaves work perfectly with it, not to mention the honeycomb embossing and the decorative edged panel underneath!
