Monochromatic Week at Dynamic Duos

It's monochromatic week at Dynamic Duos - one of my favorite weeks - because I love the elegance of a card done in monochrome.  This week includes a lovely pair of colors...



I did add one neutral this week to make my music stand out...

Just a Note

I came across this lovely music stamp and set of dies by Impression Obsession while I was visiting South Dakota last week.  They have a charming little store, downtown, right next to an old-fashioned candy/soda shop.  It's a wonderful stop if you ever get to Rapid City!!

I spent way too much time than I should have on this simple card.  I felt like I needed to show you creativity and uniqueness - I tried embossing the birds, I tried adding flowers and ribbons and pearls - all kinds of stuff.  But I finally sat back and realized that a lovely stamp just doesn't need anything else!

Definitely be sure to check out the rest of the Dynamic Duos design team this week.  It is with a very sad face and a heavy heart that I have to say it's this design team's last week with Dynamic Duos.  I know that it's been an amazing experience for me.  The color combos have been fresh and fun and I will continue to be a regular player.  Simply serving with this group of talented ladies - all of whom have a permanent place in my Google Reader - has been an honor!!

I'll miss being on the team with you Kim. But this is where we met and I'll continue to visit! Love this pretty card and the way you've used the birds. The one pointing at the sentiment is clever!

It does have a more powerful punch the way it is Kim. Love the one bird on the other tone having a peek at the sentiment. x
