Dynamic Duos #36

I'm not normally fond of making Valentine's cards - those aren't my favorite colors, but this year I have really enjoyed it for some reason. I was feeling all "challenged out" and trying to give myself a break. So, today I worked on scrapbook layouts that I needed to complete/catch up on. After a little creative brain break, I felt inspired to give the Dynamic Duos a whirl because of the color combination.

I went with something pretty simple -- black frame around red BoBunny dotted cardstock - SQUEE! That stuff is SO cute. I can't help it. I bought some to stash for Christmas cards and I'm finding it's great for V-day cards. Dual purpose is even better.

I have been wanting some big ole' gaudy satin ribbon for Christmas cards! Perfect for making a big ole' gaudy bow for a card -- and I LOVE IT! I just picked this up at Wal-Mart. I'm somewhat adventurous, but unfortunately, rather cheap. That's a tough combination, believe me.

I used the stamp set from my CTMH Artiste collection and trimmed a black scalloped circle to mat it. The silver pearls are from Doodlebug Design (also purchased for a Christmas collection).

Thanks for visiting! Pin It
