Dynamic Duo #1

It's official!  The Dynamic Duo Challenge Blog is up and running!!  I am thrilled to be on the first design team/  I have all the other "Dynamos" linked up on my sidebar - be sure to check out their creations.

The first color challenge was chosen from a contest on the Dynamic Duo Facebook page - Lucky Limeade and Pool Party!!  The deal with this challenge is to use ONLY these two colors (plus any neutrals) on any paper crafting project - cards, scrapbooking, digital or other.

I love how cheerful these two colors are together, so I made a card of "comfort"...



Papertrey Ink


I had so much fun working with these colors, I did a bonus card!

*Squeal* - how exciting!! Two gorgeous cards, Kim (how cute is that bow on your second card??!!). I really love your first card; the dew drops are sheer perfection, as a finishing touch.

I LOVE how you used the PTI circles background for the rain especially with those little gems thrown in. So awesome!!

Both cards are stunning and so bright and cheery. I love the composition of stamps for your first card and the added bling in the 'rain'. Such beautiful inspiration. It's great to be on the DT with you.

Kim, you've done it again...absolute perfection! :) Love both of these! The first is so fun and I love the rain and gemstones with that cute little umbrella! The second on is such a calming, elegant card and I really like the touch of tiny gemstones you added! This team is going to be so wonderful to work with! :)

Beautiful work. Loved these cards. I tried to pin one of them on Pinterest for future inspiration but got a message the picture was not pinable. I wish it would work as Pinterest is a great way to organize pictures for future inspiration. :-)

Marybeth said...

Both cards are so pretty and bright. I do love the colors together . I don't know if I would have used these on my own so Im so glad I tried it, because I love the combo. Beautiful inspirational cards.
