Dynamic Duos #9

Time for a new Dynamic Duo Challenge!  This is the first time we have had a week five since the start of the challenge!  Week 5 is a Mix & Match Duo.  We pick one color of the duo and you pick the other!  Our color pick this week is Crumb Cake.  You pick the other part of the duo.  Neutral colors are allowed in your creation as well.

Wondering which neutral colors are allowed?  Check out our new neutrals color chart!

My Dynamic Duo colors are Desert Sand (for Crumb Cake) and Sweet Leaf by Close To My Heart.

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

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
S1206 Life is Tweet (only available through June 30!)

Design Tips: My scalloped square was cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  My layered circles were cut with the Circle Stax Dies by MFT.  I used the Icicle Border die to sponge on my grass strip at the bottom.


My card is based on the sketch this week at Mojo Monday.

  1. First of all, Allisa, I LOVE your sweet card. It is perfect in every little detail! Your bow is to die for!

    Second, thanks for the advise on the Blogger storage issue. I received a great link from another reader, as well, so I have some cleanup work to do. I especially appreciated what you said because I think your photos are awesome and if that's what they look like resized smaller, then I'm on it and it will save my Blog and my marriage! LOL! Thanks so much!
