Feeling Blue... and Pink

 Call off the search dogs... I am alive and okay!  I made a promise to myself to do the weekly challenges on Dynamic Duo from the start, and I was doing so well.  But then I went away for my family vacation (I know... feel bad for me...), which was a good reason to miss a week of the challenge.  On return from vacation, I had to go to the ER for what turned out to be torticolis, and we have no idea how I got it, but let me tell you, it is PAINFUL!  I was given painkillers, which knocked me out so I basically slept for the next week, thus missing two weeks in a row of challenges.  BUT... I'm back, and once again, I've combined my two favorite challenges, Dynamic Duo, a color challenge blog with a color challenge this week of Baja Breeze and Pink Pirouette, and The Friday Mashup.  This week, the challenge was to make a project with a banner or flag, or make a project with a matching envelope or mash it up and do both.


I made two cards following the same basic sketch: a birthday card and a thank you card.

Colors Used: Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Stamp sets: Happiest Birthday Wishes, Word Play
Other: various edgelets and embossing folders and edges, paper-piercer, white twine

Thanks for looking...
