Dynamic Duos 6 and CAS-ual Fridays 56

Sunday, June 10, 2012

I thought I'd get a quick post in this morning before I head out to mow the dreaded lawn.  I'm not looking forward to it as it rained the better part of last week and now the grass is almost up to my kneecaps!  

I actually made this card yesterday incorporating the polka dot challenge at CAS-ual Fridays and the color challenge from Dynamic Duos.  I was going to scrap it and try something else, but when I looked at it again this morning it didn't seem so bad so here it is:

I don't think my dots do this lovely color challenge justice and if I find time this week I may try something else.  I've got some lovely Basic Gray DSP that is calling my name so maybe I'll get to use it.  The layout I've used is fairly simple and is from an FTL sketch from March.  It's actually the layout I thought of first when I saw the polka-dotted challenge.

The dots are just a 3/4-inch Basic Gray circle layered with a 1/2-inch Regal Rose circle.  The sentiment is from It's Your Birthday.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I am in love with this - great colours, but my fave part is the graphic-ness of the design - is it a necklace? a banner? LOVE!

Cute card, love the CAS styling. Hope you were able to get the lawn mowed. I had to do yardwork this morning....I knew if I started stamping first, it would never get done!

It's a fabulous use of this color challenge (IMHO). Very sophisticated in its simplicity. TFS!

My lawn has been the same way. Hard to fit in the mowings. I have to say that I just love this card. Said wow out loud when it came to my inbox. Pinned for another day!

Very pretty, Jen! Crisp, clean and the perfect punch of color. Hope the mowing went well...never a favorite chore in this house, especially in the Texas heat. Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week! :)
