Dynamic Duos #16 ~ Get Well Soon!

Good Saturday morning! You know what that means...another set of colors from Dynamic Duos. This is black tie week featuring River Rock and Basic Black with the dessert option of brads. I have some paper by My Mind's Eye that I admit I've been hoarding. OK...who am I kidding; I have a lot of paper from My Mind's Eye that I've been hoarding! Somehow I get the feeling I'm not alone ~HA! Anyway let's get down to business shall we.

This pretty floral paper has been in my "too sweet to cut" category for awhile now. But I think I need to embrace the out with the old and in with the new philosophy! After all; there's always pretty new paper to be had. I stamped and punched my SU bird then layered it with foam tape onto MFT: Well Worn Greetings label dies. One cut from river rock and the other from a swiss dot black paper. A PTI: Filligree Border and small Double Ended Banner were die cut from RiverRock. I adhered the punched branches from the bird set to the back of the sentiment banner, curved them to the front, then added it to the card with foam tape. I really like the look of this. I used my dessert option and added a couple of brads here. They remind me of little berries.

Now go get yourselves busy with a card for this latest combo! Can't wait to see what you create. Please take some time to visit the team; they're all linked up on my sidebar ~Lisa

Black always makes a card a bit more elegant. Yours is all that and more. Sometimes we just have to use our supplies.
:) enjoy your Sunday ,Lisa.

What is this hoarding of papers that you speak of? I use EVERY paper I purchase. Kidding! Haha!! I have a drawer full (ok, maybe 3 drawers) of paper that is "too sweet to cut". Seriously, I'm glad you cut into that pretty paper for your card, though because it is GORGEOUS! I just love the elegant look and how everything seems to pop off the rich background. Just stunning! :)

beautiful card, love that filigree punch you used!

Jinny Newlin said...

Absolutely not alone, Lisa! I have that same paper, that I've been saving for the perfect project! I can't bring myself to cut it down for a card, though, at least not until I've had a chance to put it into a layout. LOVE what you've done with this duo! Yum!
