Dynamic Duos #2

Thanks to everyone that participated in our inaugural challenge at Dynamic Duos last week.   Hope you can all make it back this week! We are seeing Pool Party again this week, paired with So Saffron.

My lighting is a little off, my card is made with Pool Party and Buttercup (CTMH version of So Saffron). You are not required to use Stampin Up products for the challenge.  All products are welcome, use colors as close to the Dynamic Duo as possible.  I incorporated the sketch design from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Design Tips-For those of you familiar with the Dotty For You Paper Packet, you might recognize the yellow striped paper.  The yellow striped paper comes with a grey stripe….I added strips of Pool Party cardstock to keep my color theme.  You could easily change the color of any of your striped pattern paper to match your project.  Here is a picture of the original paper-the yellow/grey stripe.

I paper pieced my bird and layered my saying with multiple colors. The Pool Party strip was embossed with a Dots embossing folder to keep with the dotty theme!  I added a bitty sparkle for his eye to finish off the card.
