Dynamic Duos......Pink Poppies


Happy Saturday Peeps!!!

This week on the Dynamic Duos challenge, it is Monochromatic week:


I love these pinks. I sorta CASED my own card, you can see it HERE, I used the same set and same layout for this card but I wanted to try it using some for the Stampin Up First Edition DSP, I have seen this done around and really like the look. I stamped the poppies onto the DSP with black stazon and then again onto some white card stock. I used my aqua painter and pretty in pink ink to color all the flowers in. I then used regal rose ink to shade. I then cut out the flower heads and added them to the DSP piece with some dimensionals. 


I added some scallops along the side using one of the Adorning Accents Edgelit Dies.
I used some retired Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon across the bottom and then added a few pearls around.
The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock.
I almost never make a card with out adding a sentiment to the front but I really couldn't make one work on this one.

The finished inside:

Be sure and head over to the Dynamic Duos Blog to see what the rest of the design team did with this fun color challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and 
HAPPY STAMPING!!
