Greetings, fellow card enthusiasts! I wanted to make a card for two challenges today: Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #96 and Dynamic Duos #1. Dynamic Duos is a brand-new color challenge that I learned about from my friend Lisa (thanks Lisa!), who is a DT member. I really like the two colors they chose for their first challenge--Pool Party and Lucky Limeade--and here is what I made from those colors:
I didn't actually own either of those colors so I approximated with PTI's Spring Moss and Aqua Mist. The patterned paper also came from Papertrey Ink: Happy Spots. I used one of my favorite Waltzingmouse sets: Sewing Box Hugs. The trees on either side of the house were made by cutting some of the flowers in half, and adding some fine leather cord, split at the top, for trunks and branches. The long stem stamp in the set was used to make a set of hedges around the house. Also used some of my vintage mini ric-rac along the bottom and also to make shades in the windows. The final touches were tiny black glass beads, and tiny buttons.
Since the sketch I based the card on was designed by Kelly Schirmer, who I believe loves this Sewing Box set maybe even as much as I do, I'm dedicating this card to her. Enjoy!
