Dynamic Duos #8

It’s Saturday and time for a new color challenge at Dynamic Duos!  This week it’s a monochromatic color scheme:  River Rock & Always Artichoke.

I decided to make a white card, using just a small amount of the two colors.  I embossed the white panel in the middle to add some texture and cut the main image out using my oval Nestabilities.  I then layerd it all, popping up the main image with foam dots and adding a button with linen thread.

Don’t forget to visit the other design team members’ blogs for some more wonderful inspiration this week!  Then, remember to upload your project to the challenge blog by next Thursday at noon (PDT).

Have a great weekend!

    What a beautiful card Melissa – I love those colours together and like that you've used them as accents on your card.

    This is lovely Melissa and the white background allows the colours to shine. The embossing works so well!

    Don't tell anybody, but this is my favorite, Melissa! I love all the white space and almost went that way myself.
