Dynamic Duos

Uh oh, I found a new challenge to take part in!!  Dynamic Duos challenge #7 this week, is to use the colours Melon Mambo and Basic Black – yummo, what a sensational combination!  I’ve combined this with this week’s sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches. And here is the result:

I have used Field Flowers stamp set, and embossed the flower image with white embossing powder, directly onto the Melon Mambo Cardstock.  The black layer has been dry embossed using the Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  The greeting is from the Perfect Punches stamp set, with some pink half-backed pearls (non- Stampin’ Up!).  Some strips of white card stock punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, and some of my favourite faux stitching in black, as a finishing touch.
Loving this colour combo!

Happy stamping!
