Hello everybody! This is my second post as a Dynamic Duos design team member. I'm so very excited to be a part of all of this!
The challenge this week is to use Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand. The rules say that neutrals are welcome, so I added Early Espresso to mine. However when I read through the rules again, I realized that it says black, white, vanilla, skin colors and craft are welcome.....maybe espresso isn't considered a neutral? I'll need to check into that. In the future I will be more careful and try to stick closer to the main colors.
I also incorporated the sketch from Merry Monday #40 . I flipped the sketch on it's side.
I had a lady ask me to make a christmas card for her mother and she wanted an oldish, Thomas Kincade feel. I just purchased the Christmas Lodge single tree stamp and felt it might be a good fit. I'm not a fan of two papers butted up next to each other without a ribbon or something to cover the seam, so I added a couple strands of espresso bakers twine, tied into a bow, to cover the seam. I also used the lace ribbon to add to the vintage feel. I hope she enjoys her handmade christmas card!
Here's a list of supplies......
Stamps: Christmas Lodge single tree stamp, Best Yet
Paper: Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Festival of Prints DP
Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand (sponging)

Thanks for taking a peek and have a magnificent day!
