Oh, Hello for Dynamic Duos #35

Hello there stampers! This week at Dynamic Duos we are taking things "Soft and Subtle" with a combo of Certainly Celery and So Saffron. Although Certainly Celery is not my favorite shade of green, I REALLY like this pairing. 

I will be honest, I had no idea where to start when I decided to use the Oh, Hello stamp set. I love that sentiment, by the way. It is something you would say to someone who maybe was standing behind you and you just realized they were there..."Oh, Hello". So nonchalant. Love it! Sorry for that moment of randomness, that is just how I roll sometimes. :) 
Here is another attempt at "shabby". Does it qualify? I'm not sure. I sponged pretty much every edge of the card (and the white doily) with some Crumb Cake ink. There is a "chevron-theme" going on this card, too. After I lined up the little chevron pieces I thought about running some stitching down the middle and then I remembered....I don't sew. So, I opted for a line of pearls instead of the stitching.

Finally, I added a punched and layered sentiment and a little punched butterfly just because it felt like it needed something else. Lots of items from the *new* Spring Catalog on this one. All of the products I used are listed at the end of the post.
I hope you will join us and play along this week at Dynamic Duos this week. Please stop by and visit the rest of the Designers to see what they created with this subtle color combo:
