Today’s Dynamic Duos challenge is for the colors Pool Party and Lucky Limeade.
One other area in which my card stash is lacking is baby boy cards. I tend to gravitate toward pink and girly themes when I create baby cards. So I finally faced the reality that I need to make some baby boy cards and then used this color combo to do just that.
I did substitute a bit for the colors. The sponged background on the Rectangle Stitched Mats panel and the three little hearts were done with Pool Party ink. But I used PTI’s Simply Chartreuse polka-dot patterned paper for the grass and also PTI’s Aqua Mist gingham patterned paper for the baby blanket bundle.
Though it’s tough to see except on the close-up photos, I used the Polka Dot Basics II impression plate on the white background panel. The stork’s body and also the baby bundle are raised with foam adhesive, and I added a little glitter pen to the stork and the 3 little aqua hearts.
