Dynamic Duos Challenge #59

    I've been waiting for this duo since I've started doing these challenges because I've wanted to combine grey and orange. I've seen it pop up so many times lately in patterns and papers and decor. It's a really great unexpected combo that I just love for some reason :)
   So, here's the LINK to the challenge where you can see all of the submissions.

    There are just a ton of really great combos on this challenge. Grey and hot pink would have been fun to do as well. But, I'm under the wire so here's my one shot!
    I the base of the card is made with American Crafts cardstock in Charcoal and the paler grey and white are from my scrap stash, as was the ribbon. (I love when I can finish off scraps!) I embossed the background with a folder from Cuttlebug and I die cut the light grey panel with my brand new My Favorite Things die, Peek-A-Boo Trio. Now I have those three little circles to make something else! From there I stamped the 'smile' sentiment from My Mind's Eye's set Be Happy. For the 'inside' I stamped the flower and butterfly from a Martha Stewart set and the heart and dashes from Mama Elephant's So Breezy set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To add some orange, I used my new inktense pencils set and picked up the Tangerine and Ink Black pencils and my water brush to create the color and shadows. I added a few more details with my white gel pen and a dash of Stickles in Silver to the heart because it was getting a little lonely being just grey.
    I hope you like the card and have a happy 4th of July!!
