Yes, It’s been rather quiet here the past couple days! I’ve been on a mini staycation here at home from blogging & the general craziness of life, taking time to refocus and muster up some of the mojo that has been sneaking away recently.  I’m back today with a card for Dynamic Duos before I head off into a busy weekend!  To be honest, I’m feeling ready for the slowdown of cooler days!  It’s time.  I actually wore a sweatshirt last night while sitting in front of the open windows!  Love that!

This week at Dynamic Duos, we get some softer colors to play with:

Feeling the need for a couch kind of day this week, I made this simple card with the color duo!  The pattern on the couch reminds me so much of a couch my in-laws have in their basement (from the 70’s, perhaps?)!  Oranges & greens on some sort of velvet textured material!  I added the strip of embossed cardstock to the lower portion of the card to bring out the dots on the couch.  Other than that, I popped up the little round cushion with a foam dot and added a little drop of Stickles to its center.

I hope you’ll take some time to visit the design team blogs as well as the guest designer blogs!  There are so many wonderful cards this week!

Have a super Saturday!

    Great card, Melissa. I could use a couch day, too! Hope you find some time to chill out and relax. 😉

    What a fun little couch Melissa and I love the embossed polka dots under it. Sweatshirt weather is the best huh!!

    Love, love, LOVE this one, Melissa! Although I have been having quite a few “couch days” since my foot surgery. THe little popped up pillow and embossed accnt are the perfect touch. Have a fun weekend! 🙂

    Everyone needs a couch day now and then! The pattern on the couch reminds me of a well-loved old sofa my parents used to own! Cute card! I too love sweatshirt weather, and look forward to more of it!

    Yes, please, I want to be on THAT plush sofa with my heating pad tucked under! Awesome card that draws the eye right to it!!

    I like how you paper pieced the couch and the row of dots underneath.
