Dynamic Duos #11

Time for a new color duo at Dynamic Duos! The color duo this week is Pink Pirouette & Baja Breeze.  I have to admit, I am not a pastel kind of girl!  I tend to go with either bold colors or earthy tones.  After having three boys…..there is also not much pink in this house! So, this color duo was truly a challenge for me.  For starters, I had to find something that was pink!  Fortunately my scrap pile saved me with a pink sheet of cardstock.  I am clueless as to where it came from or who made it…all I can tell you…is it is pink!  No excuses for not joining in the challenge….if I can pull it off, I know you can too!


The pastel colors automatically made me think of something with a baby theme.  I came up with an assortment of baby stamps to create my card.  Supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

B1096 Baby Acessories-Retired

Welcome Baby Stamp-SU

1385 White Daisy Cardstock

X5917 Sky Cardstock

Pink Cardstock-Unknown

Z891 VersaMark Ink

Z673 White Embossing Powder

Z2194 Sky Ink



Dots Embossing Folder-Provocraft
