DD # 21 ~ Thank You!


Saturday greetings! Our monochromatic colors at Dynamic Duos this week are two shades of green ~ Always Artichoke and Certainly Celery. It seems appropriate to finish up the summer challenges with green as the trees will soon be ablaze with color and before we know it the green grass will lie dormant under a blanket of white fluff. My card is a tribute or thank you of sorts to the lovely days of September. The summer heat gave way to pleasant days and cool evenings. The annuals are fading and mums blooming ~ Autumn is here!


I used my SB labels 18 to die cut a window in my 4" x 4" card. I filled the space by placing the same size label inside the card stamped with a Savvy Stamps sentiment and tiny PTI blooms. A triple layer of MFT Monarch Border is topped with a sweet floral trim. And scattered pearls added for accents. Here's another view showing the opening a bit better.


I would like to take a moment to remind you that when entering your cards in our challenge please remember not to enter into any other color challenges. This makes your works of art ineligible to be chosen as one of our winners. Take a moment to visit my fellow dynamos (listed on my side bar) along with our guest designers.  Beautiful inspiration awaits!!!


 I'm so glad you took the time to visit, have a splendid weekend! ~Lisa
