Dynamic Duos: Cherry Plus One

This week's Dynamic Duos is a Mix and Match week - we pick one color and you get to pick the second color.  This week's color is Cherry...although by looking at my card, you might think it is Pool Party!!

Peace & Joy
I love the richness of the cherry against the soft background.  There's lots of sparkle on this card also which is somewhat easier to see in this close-up.  I put a little dab of sparkle on every snowflake and across many of the branches.

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team - there's an amazing variety of cards this week!!  Then create your own using Cherry plus one other color and link it up.  We love to see what you have created!
  • Stamps: Papertrey Ink Through the Trees, the sentiment is actually from a Sweet 'n Sassy set that I have just realized hasn't even been released yet - check back on October 11th for a full preview of the set
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Pool Party
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up Glitter Glue, Cherry Cobbler twine and embossing folder (retired), Spellbinders circle and lacy circle

I didn't think red would go as well with Pool Party as it does. It goes REALLY well, ha ha - and now Pool Party card stock is on my Wish List. These challenges are so enabling, ha ha.
Beautiful card, Kim - all that sparkle takes it to the next level for sure.
Cheers, Karen
