Dynamic Duo Challenge #54


Hey everyone! Are you enjoying your Memorial Day Weekend? I had a great day in my scrap room. I have an open house planned next weekend to celebrate the launch of the new 2013/14 catalog, so I've been busy getting samples made using some of the new product. I also took a few minutes to create a card for the new challenge at Dynamic Duos. Since blue is my favorite color, I couldn't resist playing along again.

For this card I used some new and retiring items. The challenge colors are Bashful Blue and Midnight Muse, and you can use any neutral. Since blues are associated with baby boys I decided to go with a baby theme. I used the Easy Events stamp set, which is retiring, for the sweet little duck, and the new Best of Brides and Babies for the teddy bears and inside sentiment. The ovals were cut with the oval framelits and the corners were punched with the retiring Scallop Trim Corner punch. I used Soft Suede ink for the teddy bears and the sentiment on the inside was stamped with Midnight Muse ink. I used some Dazzling Details on the ducks umbrella, eye, and the cute onesie, but I don't like the way it turned out on the duck, gave it a funny sheen. And of course the ribbon is the Midnight Muse Stitched Satin ribbon.

I hope you have a great evening and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
