Looking for my Our Creative Corner post? Just scroll down a little! :)
Well, the day is finally here!!! It is the FIRST Official Challenge over at Dynamic Duos! How exciting is THAT?! Our first challenge colors came from our Facebook winner, Sharla who suggested that we create with "lime and aqua" this week. That was a fabulous choice for our first challenge, as I love absolutely these colors together! Sharla just happens to be joining us as a Guest Designer this week because she selected these fabulous colors. Are YOU following our Facebook page? CLICK HERE to "like" the Dynamic Duos page.
For my card, I was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I tend to shy away from "square or round" cards, so this was a fun challenge for meI used the Everyday Enchantment DSP which is retired from this year's Sale-A-Bration catty. The pattern on the paper reminded me of the skin of a frog (I have NO idea why!)...so that's where the froggy image from Turtle and Co. came from. I'm not a huge fan of frogs, so this cute image is as far as I get to the little buggers. I added a little embossing, the sheer ribbon, sparkle and that patterned brad. I watercolored the image with inks and a Blender Pen. But, in the end, the googlie eyes are what really add personality to this guy! The complete supply list is added to the end of this post.
I sure hope you will join us for the Dynamic Duos kick-off challenge! Please stop by and visit the rest of the inaugural Design Team to see what they have whipped up for this challenge. The challenge is open until Thursday, May 10th at Noon (PDT).
