Dynamic Duos.....Birthday


Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!

today I am sharing a card made using a color challenge at Dynamic Duos.
This week is their one year anniversary and to celebrate they are asking us to choose a favorite past color combo. Well, as most of you know I love Concord Crush and I know it is retired but I love it so and I stocked up a bit before it retired, and team it up with Wisteria and it just sings!!!!


I decide to use a pretty Stampin Up set that is about to retire, "Just Believe" will be gone soon, lounging on a beach somewhere and soaking up the sun, but not my set, it is a keeper.

I stamped the image with Concord Crush a couple of times onto some Whisper White card stock and then made a mask for the moon with a post it note and my 1-1/2 inch circle sponge. I then sponged over the whole thing with Concord Crush going very dark to very light top to bottom.


The base of my card is a 5 inch x 10 inch  piece  of Concord Crush folded in half, then a layer of Wisteria Wonder and then I used my diagonal score board to create the lines on the white piece.

The main image is matted with wisteria and concord card stock.  The sentiment comes from the Happiest Birthday wishes stamp set. I added some Wisteria ribbon and silver brads to finish the card.

Thanks for stopping by today!
