Dynamic Duos #6 - Happiness

Happy Weekend Everyone,
Today's post is for the Dynamic Duo's Challenge this week and our colours are Basic Grey and Regal Rose plus Neutrals.  I decided to go with Apothecary Art as my focal point and build around it with the new Labels Collection Framelits and some Twitterpated DSP.  I embossed the Regal Rose panel with Provo Crafts Textile EB Folder and sponged it with Regal Rose to highlight the embossing. The satin ribbon and pearls are my finishing touches.

Stamps: S/U's Apothecary Art,
Card and Papers: Basic Grey, Regal Rose, Whisper White, DSP Twitterpated
Ink: Stazon Black, Regal Rose
Markers: Regal Rose, Basic Grey
Finishing Touches: Basic Grey Satin Ribbon, Pearls
Tools: Big Shot, Sizzix Framelits - Labels Collection, Sizzix Edgelits - Adorning Accents, Sizzix Petals -A-Plenty EB Folder, Provo Craft Textiles EB Folder, Aqua Painter, Sponge, Dimensionals, Dble Sided Tape
After much cleaning and sorting of our goods and shackles we are finally starting to see some progress in re-organising our home after decorating. Still a little bit to do, but that might be put on hold for a while. We have been planting a lot of our garden with seedlings for Spring and tidied up the rest of the yard around the house.
Unfortunately last week my computer decided to crash after much frustration on my part for months with everything constantly locking up, but hopefully some of the issues has been solved. I hope to be back soon creating for the challenges I love to do and have missed.  My craft area is coming together slowly with quite a few changes, now I just need to tidy up those items I don't use much and find a home for them.
Hope your having a fabulous day creating.

  8. I like the way you combined texture and pattern, and then also used that stunning stamp set. Beautiful card!
    I got my card all ready to upload on my blog tomorrow and see that it has some green on it so it won't qualify. I'll be more careful next time.
    Cheers, Karen
