Dynamic Duos #44

Stopping by with my creation for today’s Dynamic Duos challenge, which is for the colors So Saffron and Basic Black.  There is also a Dessert Option for ribbon.


It was difficult for me to see anything but ‘bumblebee’ with these colors! 😉  But I fought that instinct and used my Botanical Silhouettes stamp set for a little get well card, instead.  And I might send it to myself, because I’m going to need it next week!


I fussy cut each of the blooms and attached them with foam adhesive, also adding a few little black marker dots to them (don’t look too closely – my eyes have had a hard time lately!).  Then a few rhinestones here and there.


That’s it for me today.  I am in for a crazy week ahead, but I am hoping to see you back here next Saturday, at least, for the next Dynamic Duos challenge.

Make sure you stop in to see what the rest of the Design Team have created and to check out the details for this challenge.  I hope you will participate with us!

    Your card is perfect! The yellow layer behind the main layer, the popped up blossoms, the delicate text background, the gems, the little strip of striped paper at the bottom, and the stamps themselves are so very lovely! I’ve got to pin this! Thanks for sharing it!!!
