My first Duo!


The idea for todays card was originally sparked by the Fusion Challenge - I hadn't had a chance to play along with that one too, and I just love the concept!!  But I didn't make the cut off this morning :(  But that's okay, because I was over at my sweet friend Carol's blog and noticed that she had combined the Fusion Challenge with the Dynamic Duos challenge (and did an absolutely beautiful card by the way!).  I jumped over the the Dynamic Duo blog, which I hadn't been to before, and decided to incorporate my idea into this challenge.  Initially, I thought that the two colour challenge would limit my, but not at all - I loved playing along with it!

Here are the inspiration colours:

And here's my card:

It's a "fusion" of several different stamp sets, including TAWS Cover Ups and Trees Company, Paper Smooches (the balloons are from the Metropolis and the balloon "strings" are from Flap Happy) and the sentiment and squiggle are from some old Papertrey Ink sets.  I finished it off with some glossy accents on the balloons and the bottom "stripe" is washi tape. Pretty simple little card :)

Thanks for having a look!
Hope you are having a lovely day :)


  1. Wow, this is so sweet, I love the lines and that sweet birdie!!

  2. Eeee...dazzling and darling Dynamic Duo! How sweet is this card, with its fusion of various stamps, papers and washi tape (another thing for me to try at some point)! The squiggles and balloons are spirit-lifting (love squiggles; even the word itself makes me giggle!), and the bird is adorable. Love it! And especially love the comments you've left on my blog (yes, the 'obsession' is full-on!) ~ heart-warming, day-brightening, smile-making! The Be-YOU-tiful card is very much dedicated to you, my friend!!

  3. oh, this is wonderful. So glad you decided to join in our this week's challenge at Dynamic Duos and hope you will be back soon.

  4. What a simply sweet little card!
