Dynamic Duos Challenge #69

Hello everyone! Hope your weekend was a good one. DH and I spent the weekend in Medford, OR visiting his parents, who just moved up there, and celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary. I have always loved Southern Oregon, and it was so much cooler than here in Redding. Came home today and it's 102! Yuck!! Come on fall!!!  :)

So while laundry was going I thought I'd create a card for the challenge over at Dynamic Duos which is to use Old Olive and Pacific Blue colors this week. Since I didn't clean my room from the last challenge and making anniversary cards (DD and DSIL's is tomorrow), I still had some Old Olive scraps on my desk.

I have seen some different folds on several different websites lately and thought I'd make one for a change. I cut the Pacific Blue card base at 4 1/4" by 11 and scored it at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4", which when the tabs are folded in, you have a perfect A2 size card. The Old Olive mat is cut at 5 1/4" x 4" and the Whisper White is cut at 3 3/4" x 5", all basic mat sizes for this card.
And here's the inside of the card. I used the Petite Pairs stamp set for the sentiments and the Papillon Potpourri which is part of the Butterfly Bundle that's on sale for 15% off through the end of September. And of course I had to add some Dazzles to the some of the butterflies. Gotta have some bling with butterflies!

Well, time to get dinner on the table. I hope what's left of your weekend is good and that you have a fantastic week! I thank you for stopping by.
