Dynamic Duos #1 ~ Enjoy the Moment!

Welcome to My Paper Tales! Today marks the debut of the new colour challenge Dynamic Duos! But wait there's more exciting news...it also marks my debut as a first time ever regular member of a design team! Eeek!!!...can someone please pinch me! I am so enjoying this special moment!

Okay now down to business. This week we have the bold and sassy colors of Pool Party and Lucky Limeade. What could be more fun than a sassy little frog with glittery boots dancing in the rain and enjoying the moment!?!

I started my card with some fun papers from Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon. I used Papertrey Ink: limitless layers dies to showcase my happy little frog by Art Gone Wild. My coloring was done with Tombow markers and topped off with a Gelly Roll glaze pen. To add a touch of sass to the froggy I used a Quickie glue pen and crystal glitter...lovin those jazzy boots!! The fun tin pin and buttons are October Afternoon, the scallop and rick rack dies are Papertrey Ink.

There you have it friends. We hope to see you playing along with the Dynamic Duos challenge this week. Our challenge ends on Thursday at noon. Be sure to stop by the new blog to meet my fellow Dynamos and see what they've whipped up for you!  ~Lisa
