Sassy Grad ~ DD52 & FM109

Dynamic Duos is celebrating!  To commerate their one year anniversary, we get to pick any past DD color combo.  I did a six month stint as a designer at DD, so I have a special affection for these challenges!  I chose to go with color combo #7...Melon Mambo and Basic Black.
Graduation is still the name of the game for me lately.  I am almost done, however....whew!  My grand total is up to 19 graduation cards! We live in a small, rural community and I have teenagers, so we have recieved several graduation announcements.  I also have a middle school grad this year, so that means gifts for his fellow classmates. 
For this card I used the sketch from The Friday Mashup....I missed the deadline by just a couple of hours though!  Shoot!    
I've had this fun black and white paper that I bought at Hobby Lobby for quite a while now.  I've mainly only used it in the spring for graduation cards, and here it is again!  I thought the leopard print was really fun and goes well with the bright Melon Mambo.  I was trying to come up with some different combos of stamps for my grad cards also.  I'm the kind of girl who likes to make one and be done.  I hardly ever make mulitples of the same card.  This fun little phrase from Pure Gumption fit just perfectly into the modern label punch, which fit perfectly into the medallion from the valentine stamp set Affection Collection.  The little No. 1 banner is also from Affection Collection.  I think the two sets fit nicely together! 
Here's a list of all my supplies.....
Stamps: Pure Gumption, Affection Collection
Paper: Melon Mambo, Floral District & Recollections DP, Black, White
Ink: Black, Melon Mambo
Accessories: 1/4" black ribbon, rhinestones, circle cutter, modern label punch
Happy Anniversary Dynamic Duos! 
Thanks for taking a peek!
