DD #39


Have never used this colour combo before and I thought it should be a challenging one from The Dynamic Duos Challenge. I am CASing this card from Shari Carroll's.

I wanted to use a duo colour card but as I do not have one, I made one myself. Using one of my favourite technique which is heat embossing, the base card is stamped with HA Lauderdale Tree and heat embossed in clear powder and by accident there were some leftover of the black powder.  I like how the random black spots turned out on the card. The inner card is stamped with HA Magical Moments in aqua marine and a slot is made for a gift card.

As for the flowers, I stamped and heat embossed the HA Starbust Lace 3 times mainly 2 times in a pink cardstock and the top one in white cardstock but heat embossed in pink. The sentiment is a die cut.  I am also entering this card into The Basic Grey Challenges.

Thank you for your sweet comments.

Lai-Yoke, what a happy accident! The black spots really do look amazing there - just the perfect amount :) And the different pink/white embossing is a really neat idea. Love the pink & aqua together!
