Dynamic Duos #46

Hello!

Sometimes in the middle of making a card, I lose my way. So I walk away from the craft desk, leaving what I was working on just sitting there. Often I'll come back and start in a new direction. Other times, as with this card, I'll come back and take a look with fresh eyes and decide I actually like it. While this card isn't exactly what I was envisioning when I started making it, I'm quite happy with how it turned out. Somehow the night photography has made the pink a deeper colour than in real life, but you get the idea. ;-)
I used PTI Heart Prints, stamped in SU! Primrose Petals and Pool Party. The patterned paper is SU! More Amore. I also added a little bit of washi tape.

This week's Dynamic Duos Challenge #46 calls for us to use Primrose Petals and a colour of our choice. I chose Pool Party. I usually play Dynamic Duos as an extreme cardmaking challenge, using only the two colours listed and no neutrals (other than the card base). That is one of the things I really love about this challenge, the limit on colour adds to the creativity. This time, I decided to add some neutrals by way of the grey and cream on the paper, and I'm okay with that decision so far. :-)
I'm also popping this card into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.

I'm back to work today. I wish I was on holidays with my kids. They have another two weeks before returning to school for second term. I do have another couple of days off work at the end of next week, so it isn't all bad, LOL!

Thanks for coming to visit me!

This is so pretty. Love your choice of additional color, and I agree that the neutrals you added here are a good thing. Oh, and I cannot tell you how tempted I am to stamp just a tad more on to my CASE study card, so it will look just a bit more like yours!
