Dynamic Duos Challenge #5

It’s time again!  This is color challenge #5 over at Dynamic Duos and what a fun color combination this week!  Real Red & Island Indigo!  Go on over and play along!  There are so many talented players joining us each week and it has been so much fun visiting all the different blogs!

Here is my card for the this week’s challenge:

I used a chevron background stamp from Hero Arts and colored it with Real Red and Island Indigo markers.  I stamped the car image from The Craft’s Meow and added a touch of red Stickles along the side for fun.  The car is popped up using foam dots.  I created the sentiment banner using a square punch and added some baker’s twine and a button.  After I finished this card, I thought I might use something similar for some Father’s Day cards that I need to get started on!  I just love that car image!!

The challenge ends on Thursday, June 7, at Noon (PDT).  Winners will be announced Friday, June 8.

Here are some basic challenge rules:

  1. Any project is welcome…paper crafts, scrapbooking, digital, or crafts…
