Dynamic Duos.....Birthday Wishes


Happy Saturday Peeps!!!

It is time for a new color challenge at Dynamic Duos.


This is my last design as a design team member, my 6 month term has came to an end. 
Being a part of this team has been a fantastic experience, designing and working beside some of the best!
I want to thank Lesley and Anne Marie for inviting me to be on this fabulous team!

Now on to this awesome color combo!!! I think it such a pretty combo. I knew right away what I wanted to do and what set I would use. The Stampin Up Stippled Rose is perfect! This is a two step stamp set and I stamped one of the base flower with Blushing Bride and then over stamped it with Calypso Coral, then the second rose is made with only Calypso Coral, I just stamped off the the first layer of Calypso and then used it full strength  for the top stamp. I used Crumb Cake ink for the leaves, stamping the base leaf with the Crumb Cake ink once and the top, line stamp, with crumb cake three times. A stamp a ma jig is a must for me with this set!


I used Crumb Cake for the base and then a layer of Blushing Bride. The DSP I used comes from the Tea for Two paper pack.
I colored some vanilla seam binding ribbon using my calypso coral ink pad. I tied an triple loop bow and added an antique brad to the center. The sentiment is from the Occasional Quotes stamp set.
I finished it off with some basic pearls in the top corners and I added a few to the flower centers.
Be sure and hop on over to the Dynamic Duos Blog  to see what the rest of the team did with these colors!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Birthday Vicki! It was a pleasure to honor you this week with our cards! I have sooooo enjoyed being on the DD team with you the last several months. I had been a big fan of yours before our term began and was blown away that I would even be considered to be on a team with the likes of someone as talented as you! Your work is beautiful and you are a master when it comes to layering flowers. This card is certainly no exception. What a fabulous stamp choice for this color combo!

What can I say, I was chaneling my "inner Vicki" when I made my card this week for you! You are the reason I bought this stamp set, my friend. You are incredibly talented AND an enabler. Hee hee! Your card is gorgeous! I love the polka dots, the fluffy bow and those fussy cut flowers. It has been a pleasure to work with you (once again) at Dynamic Duos over the past 6 months. You know I am a HUGE fan of your creations! Thanks for being you and thanks for the wonderful inspiration. Big hugs!! :)
