Thinking of you

Hello all!

Sorry I am late with my DD post...just dealing with some nonsense.

This is going to be a fun week at the Dynamic Duos...

So, we are using green...and you get to choose any color you want!!!
I can't wait to see what color combo you create!

I went with green and lavander...


All cardstock is from Papertrey Ink. I used a stencil from Heidi Swapp and heliotrope ink from Color Box. The rolled flowers and leaves are dies from Die-namics, My Favorite Things Stamps. The sentiment is from WPlus 9.

Curling flowers is a hit or miss for me...sometimes I get them right, sometimes I don't! I used black ink from Hero Arts for the sentiment and I inked the edges with some soft brown shadow ink from Hero Arts. I scattered some sequins from Neat And Tangled Stamps.

I followed the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch...


Hope you can play along with us this week...can't wait to see what you create!


Hope to see you at the Dynamic Duos!

Thanks for stopping by!
