Dynamic Duos #86: Subtly Yours (Soft Aqua & Pink)

Here in upstate NY we're back in the clutches of the dreaded polar vortex again - it was only minus 7 degrees when we woke up this morning:( :( :( 

I absolutely loooooove this week's color combination at Dynamic Duos :

Especially for a Valentine :)

I white embossed the flourish heart from a 2009 Hero Arts clear set Valentine Flourish (CL311) on a piece of musical notes pp from Echo Park Everyday Eclectic then panel was edged with a silver paint pen.  At first I was going to stamp Happy Valentine's Day in the banner on the pp panel but I opted to use the die cut word "love" and to shadow it with SU silver glimmer paper instead.  The cherub and arrow dies from Impression Obsession were cut from SU pink pirouette pp and shadowed in white.  The hearts were cut from SU pink pirouette cs using a SU/Sizzix Fashionable Hearts embosslit
Other Supplies Used:  Papertrey ink white cs, silver sequins from stash, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder

I've got to share a current photo of my mom holding her great granddaughter (my grand niece!) Hadleigh- she's 4 weeks old today:)

I really appreciated all the constructive comments on my last post as I continue to struggle with sketches!  Keep warm and stamp on!!

I LOVE everything about your card. It caught my eye on the Dynamic Duos challenge. You do a marvelous job of creating shadows. I will have to try that with some of my dies. I love the paper you used and the beautiful flourish stamp. I was wondering how I could use that stamp on a card beyond Valentine's Day. It makes a lovely background image.
P.S. Sweet picture of great grandma with her great granddaughter. <3

Robin, I feel your winter pain -- we woke up to a foot of snow and temps feeling below zero...not so fun to shovel in that kind of frigid temp! Anyway, I had to stop by to say I LOVE your card...gorgeous use of the DD colors and I love the fun layers! I also had to say how adorable that picture is of your mom holding her grand-niece. I love to see "generation" pictures like that! Take care and stay warm!
