Dynamic Duos....Perfect Day

Happy Saturday Peeps.

Time for a new color challenge at the Dynamic Duos Blog.

I pulled out a fun new SAB set called "Vintage Verses."
I stamped the sentiment/image onto the Island Indigo card stock with versmark and embossed with some white embossing powder.
I then sponged the center and edges with Island Indigo ink. Very easy and I love the effect. I then matted this image with more Indigo card stock.
I added a strip of punched white card stock across the top, punched with the dotted scallop ribbon border punch.

The base of the card is Pool Party card stock and the next layer is also pool party that I embossed with the perfect dots EF.
The DSP on here is from the Sycamore Street paper pack which is also free during Sale-A-Bration.
I added some Delicate Details Lace Tape across the bottom edge of the main image piece. I then made three rolled flowers using my Sizzix 3-D flower die (non SU) and added them to the card using my glue gun.
I then added some basic pearls to the flower centers and to the top left corner.
I then added two small white flags made from a scrap piece of embossed white card stock I found in my scrap pile. 

The rest of the Dynamo Design Team have some wonderful examples with these colors so be sure and hop on over to Dynamic Duos Blog for some great inspiration!!

Thanks for stopping by today and

What is there not to love about this card, Vicki!?!?! I see that you were the only designer not to use a neutral this week! I give you props for that! For some reason I was having a tough time with this combo without adding some Sahara Sand. Anyway, every detail on your card is perfect and I especially like the sponging around the highlights it so well!
