Dynamic Duo - tryout

I had lots of fun today making cards!  I made 3 for Dynamic Duos!  Their current color challenge = Cherry Cobbler + pick your own color.  I did Cherry Cobbler with Basic Gray (and some white)

This is the first time I've used this image from the Serene Silhouettes set.  I colored it with cherry and gray and punched out in a circle.  I popped it up and layered it on a shape from Apothecary Accents framelits.  I used another apothecary accent shape, embossed it and made a banner.  I made the corners using scallop square punch.  Added some twine and bling!

They are having a design team tryout right now.  I've never been on a design team and I'd LOVE to.  And I love the dynamic duos challenge.  They have great color combos every Saturday.
The design team tryout challenge was to make cards using two of their past color combos.
For this card I chose Lucky Limeade and Black (#20).  I made a gate-fold card and the image is only attached to the left side so the card can "swing" open.

For this card I chose the color combo #19 -Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke to make this a Christmas card!  I sponged the cajun using a mat made from a framelit.  I added some piercing around and some ribbon.  The main image is stamped in artichoke (and I added some extra color to the berries).  I stamped the chickadee in black and cut it out and popped it up overtop so it would really stand out!
