Dynamic Duo Week #16

Hello & Happy Saturday!

WOW, what a gorgeous day we are having here in south central PA! I wish it'd stay like this all year round! I'm down in my stamp room this afternoon playing while the hubby is out mowing, trimming bushes and cutting another down. I have a few things i'd like to do out in the yard but I think I will hold off on that till tomorrow!

So today I needed to get some cards made! One for my Dad's 77th birthday tomorrow and the other one for the Dynamic Duo Challenge. I have grown to love their color challenge each week. Plus Saturday's I like to stamp IF there isn't anything going on. 




Really wasn't too keen on this color combo but I seen Anne Marie made a Christmas card and it looked so pretty! Thought i'd go the same route with mine as well.

I embossed my tree with black embossing powder and added rhinestones to the snowflakes on the tree just to make it pop. I used the retired Snow Burst EF on the River Rock panel and added a piece of River Rock grosgrain with a bow. Added the sentiment and attached it to my black card base and called it finished! I'm quite happy with it! 


Dynamic Duo Week #16 Card:

Stamps: Snow Swirled
Ink: Memento Black
Cardstock: Basic Black, River Rock, Neenah White
Accessories: Versamark, Black EP, Snow Burst EF, River Rock Grosgrain, Rhinestones, Scor Tape

Well, that is all for me today!
I'm cleaning off my table and heading outside for a bit!
I think it might be firepit/smores nite later this evening. I love weather like this!

Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!
See you tomorrow!

Wow! What a pretty card! You did a great job with the challenge colors. Hope you make one this week, but, so far, the colors are a "challenge" to me. Hope you are having a great weekend!

Hi Wendy! This is one of my favorite hoilday stamp sets EVER and your card is absolutely gorgeous! I really like how the main image is tilted on the embossed background to make it stand out. The sparkly, shiny tree really takes center stage. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Dynamic Duos! :)
