Dynamic Duos: Bold & Sassy

It's bold and sassy week at Dynamic Duos and we are using Tangerine Tango and Old Olive.


I decided that the orange and greens needed to be fall.  Typically in the fall, my cards get less "white" because I love the rich fall colors in the background.  But in an experiment, I kept this very CAS with lots of white space.  Then I realized that one of my favorite parts of fall was the frost on the ground, so I added glitter to the white banner and the pumpkin.  Kind of a strange combo - glittery white and fall colors - but I like how it "feels" - just like fall!!
