I finally got my act together for this week’s Dynamic Duos challenge, combining it once again with this week’s layout from Freshly Made Sketches.  I really like this week’s color combo, but I had a hard time figuring out what to do with it until I remembered I had this designer paper.  So I went from there with the floral theme.  The Prima flowers started out white.  I saturated them in a mix of Cherry Cobbler reinker and water to dye them to the color I wanted, and let them dry thoroughly before attaching them to the card.  Some of the flowers soaked a bit longer than the others, and I like the color variation that resulted.  This card is going to a friend who will be celebrating her birthday very soon.

Since it’s getting to be time to make Valentines and lots of love-themed cards for Operation Write Home, I decided to make a twin card for that purpose. The seam binding is a little more ruffled on this card than the birthday card.  I love the look of the ruffles, but doing that is more tedious and time-consuming than I usually like to play around with, so I don’t use this technique very often.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Stamps: Artfully Asian, Short & Sweet; Everyday Messages [birthday sentiment] (Stampendous)
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Darling Dots designer series paper
