Dynamic Duos #7

We are back this week with a black tie event at Dynamic Duos.  Create a project with Melon Mambo & Basic Black.  The dessert option is to add ribbon.  My photography skills were obviously lacking when I took photos of this card!  No amount of photo editing was giving me the true colors of the card. The card is a brighter pink/black combination in person!  My card is made with Smoothie & Black cardstock by Close To My Heart.  

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

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
D1475 Card Chatter-Birthday
CC1017 Dotty For You Paper Packet
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
1386 Black Cardstock
X5763 Smoothie Cardstock
Z2105 Black Ink
Z1335 Licorice Gems
Sparkle Brad by SU
Flourish Die by MFT


The flower layers were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I scored the center of each petal, sponged the edges and rolled the ends of the petals to add more dimension.  My card is based on the inspiration card at CASE Study by Joy Taylor.

 I went with the same basic card design, layered flower and added in some bling.  I love her diecut background.....will have to add that to my wishlist!  I have also entered my card in the following challenges:

Bearly Mine -Tic Tac Toe (Flowers, Dies, Sentiment)
