The Dynamic Duos #82 - Happy Birthday

Happy Satuday morning my friends.  It's time for another color challenge from the Dynamic Duos. This week we have a "Bold & Cheery" combo of Primrose Petals and Gumball Green.

 
I started to make another Christmas card with these colors, but decided on a birthday card instead.  I used SU Whisper White, Primrose Petals and Gumball Green CS and Primrose Petals DSP.  The middle white layer is embossed with the Sizzix Trellis EF.  I stamped the flower from SU Secret Garden in Primrose Petals ink and the leaves in Gumball Green ink and then cut them out with the matching dies.  The sentiment is SU Fancy Birthday (?) (ret. - but I love the font and use this one a lot).  I did some piercing around the edges of the sentiment panel and mounted it with foam dimensionals.  The flower & leaves are also mounted with dimensionals. I finished it off with  Primrose Petals ribbon & bow.
 
The layout I used is from Viva la Verve Dec 2013 Week 1 sketch.
 
Now hop on over to the Dynamic Duos and see what fabulous creations my fellow design team members have to share with you.  I hope you get to join us this week.
 
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
