It's Bold and Sassy Week at Dynamic Duos!

It's Bold and Sassy Week at Dynamic Duos - the colors are Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi.  I knew right away what I wanted to do and I fought the urge for a week.  After all, what would be more expected than pumpkins??  But as I watched what the other design team members were coming up with - they were all being so creative with these colors - at the point I made my card, there weren't any pumpkins!!  It made me feel more unique and creative than I really am!?  So, here's my Halloween card!!

Trick or Treat

Check out all of the other designers, create a card using the Dynamic Duos colors and link it up.  We love to be inspired by YOU!



I also used this week's sketch from The Pink Elephant which is another new-to-me challenge.  I think it's worth watching their blog just to see this darling elephant icon from week to week...

Kim, I'm so glad you went with pumpkins because the colors are truly perfect. I love how you incorporated that sweet stamp on the clean design. The scallop trim and the flourishes are such a fabulous touch, too. Very cute! :)
