Dynamic Duo & a Sketch

This card was made for 2 challenges. The Dynamic Duo #15 challenge is to use the subtle colors of Certainly Celery & Pretty in Pink. I also used the sketch from the OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch challenge #133. I used Celery, and Pretty in Pink inks, and 1 strip of celery dsp, but I had to substitute the solid cardstocks with Coredinations because I'm out of the required card stock colors (gasp!) The images are all from the SU! Summer Silhouettes set, with the sentiment from SU! Whimsical Words. The pearls are from Glitterazzi that I got at the scrapbook expo recently. I did enhance the main image with a Spica glitter pen to give it more definition.




That's going to do it for me today, but thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Sunday!
