Dynamic Duos 99

The card I have for the new dynamic duos challenge is a card idea I have had floating around in my head for the past few weeks. I knew what I wanted on the card, but I wasn't sure how to arrange the elements, so this took a bit of fiddling around.

I was delighted when I saw that the dynamic duos challenge matched the colours I was wanting to use for the card…..

The gold did not feature in my idea, but this was optional anyway - so I have opted not to use it!

Here is my card….

Apologies that my photos are not great this week - I have been a bit short on time and so I had to just take quick snaps.

For the card, I started with a cream card stock base and layered on strips of black card stock. I stamped, then clear embossed the gorgeous flowers from Uniko Studio's Flower Power 2 set. These were then coloured with spectrum noir markers and fussy cut out. A bit of bling just had to be added by way of a stick on crystal.

I spent ages trying to decide how to arrange the flowers. Nothing seemed to work. I then decided to use thin scraps of card I had in front of me, to create a tree branches. This was right!!!

The sentiments are also from Uniko Studio - the Birthday from the 'A Gift for You' set and wishes comes from Pure Florals:Chrysanthemums.

Hope you like it. As always, any comments so very much appreciated.
