Dynamic Duos: Week 2

After an amazing first week, it’s time for week two of the brand new challenge called Dynamic Duos!  This week, we’re moving on to a Subtly Yours combination (soft, romantic colors):  So Saffron & Pool Party.  What a pretty combination!  I really can’t wait to see what everyone who participates comes up with because last week was fabulous!!

Here is my creation for the challenge:

I used a flower image from The Craft’s Meow and a Memory Box flourish die to create a Mother’s Day card.  I looked in my stash and discovered I had some gemstones that matched Pool Party!  Was I ever happy!  🙂

Head on over and play along with us this week!  The winners will be announced on Friday, so you have until Thursday at noon (PDT) to enter!

Here are the basic rules:
  1. Any project is welcome…paper crafts, scrapbooking, digital, or crafts…
  2. Please ONLY use the two colours listed for your project. Neutrals are welcome.
  3. Combine us with as many other challenges as you would like, except other colour challenges.

    Mmmm .. another Memory Box die that has caught my attention – what a lovely flourish. Your flower is so gorgeous and the gemstones were a great find to finish it off beautifully.

    Your card is so pretty Melissa, love how you have kept the colours so soft, and the flourish is gorgeous.

    Melissa this is the sweetest card! The icing on the cake is (are?!) the gems in your flower and the fact that you left out a couple and didn't make it a solid center!

    Just gorgeous, melissa! Wow! That flourish is a fabulous accent along with the pearls that dress up the pretty flower. An all-around stunner of a Mother's Day card! Big hugs! 🙂
