Dynamic Duos #2

Here is my card for the second Dynamic Duos Challenge.  I couldn't play along last week due to other commitments so I'm glad I got an hour today to whip up a card using the challenge colors of So Saffron and Pool Party.

I used the Emboss Resist technique with this card, which produced a nice soft image, which I feel goes well with the challenge colors.  I was trying to decide what little embellishments to put on the flags when I remembered seeing a card by Deb Fearns which used the heart from the Owl Punch.  So I used Deb's idea as inspiration for my little hearts.

Products Used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Pretty Petals; Curly Cute
Cardstock:  Pool Party; So Saffron; Whisper White; In Color 2011-13 DSP; Subtles DSP
Ink:  Versamark; So Saffron; Basic Black
Accessories:  Owl Punch; Sponge; Pearls

I love that soft background - so sweet and gentle! The banners and hearts are the perfect festive touch without overwhelming the pretty flowers. Thanks for joining in with our Dynamic Duo!
