Dynamic Duo Graduation

Gee, I guess I've been MIA for a bit. I've been enjoying thumbing through the NEW Stampin' Up catalog and absorbing all kinds of ideas and inspiration. Plus, I have been busy at my desk stamping more graduation cards.  Most of our graduations take place at the end of May, so I'm pretty much done.  I have a few more cards that I will share on my blog here in the next few days.

Todays card is for my first Dynamic Duo Challenge. This is a brand new site and is only the second week of challenges.  The idea is to use only two colors on your creation, plus you can add neutrals.  This week the colors were So Saffron and Pool Party. 

I used a couple neutrals with this color duo....first edition specialty paper, a little bit of silver sparkle paper and a touch of crumb cake.  I like the soft colors together with the pop of sparkle.  I paper pierced and faux stitched the main panel to add a little something extra. 
Stamps: Happy Graduation
Paper: So Saffron, First Edition Specialty paper, Pool Party DP, Crumb cake, Very Vanilla, Silver Sparkle
Ink: Pool Party, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Star die, paper Piercing tool, itty bitty punch pack, houndstooth EF, ruffled pool party ribbon, basic rhinestones
Thanks for taking a peek!
