Dynamic Duos #21 - Flowers, Flourishes and Pearls

Hi Paper Crafters,
Today's post is for the Dynamic Duos Challenge this week to use the Mono Chromatic Colours Certainly Celery and Always Artichoke, plus Neutrals. I decided on green flowers for my card today using the Sizzix Floral Fusion Die and the Itty Bitty Punch that is shaped the same.  For the Framelit I used the largest one and made the mat by drawing around the outside of it and cutting it out. I pierced around the Whisper White layer with the new tools from Stampin' Up!, they worked a treat.  Finished off with some Brads, Flourishes and Pearls.

Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Birthday Bash Sentiments
Card and Papers: Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, DSP Patterns Stack - Subtles
Ink: Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke
Finishing Touches: Rhinestone Brads, Pearls
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Sizzix Flower Fusion Sizzilits Die, MFT Fancy Flourish, Memory Box Tender Leaves, Sizzix Framelits - Apothecary Accents, Itty Bitty Punch, Sponges, Paper Piercing Pack  -Essentials, Stampin' Pierce Mat and Piercing Tool, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, 2 Way Glue Pen, Tombow Multi Glue
Thanks for dropping by today.
