Dynamic Duos #50 – Happy Birthday Vicki!

Here today with my last post as a Dynamic Duos Design Team member.  **sniffles**  It really has been a fun 6 months for me, being on this team – my first official design team.  I truly am going to miss it.  I want to thank all of you who stopped in to my blog from Dynamic Duos, to be inspired and to leave comments – I appreciate you!

Now let’s get on to today’s challenge!  Which is for the lovely combination of Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride.


And actually, we have a bit of a surprise for our fellow team member, Vicki Burdick, whose birthday is this week.  We all wanted to wish her a Happy Birthday, so we’re using today’s challenge as a way to surprise her with birthday wishes from all of us.  We are also linking our cards over at Lesley’s blog, where a blog hop is being held in honor of the occasion.



I colored this sweet image from With Love by Clearly Besotted Stamps using coral and kraft tones and then complimented it with some Melon Berry ribbon, coordinating gems, and Sweet Blush striped DP.  And a little Classic Kraft and Dark Chocolate for good measure.  😉


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.  And I hope you will participate with us!
