Penny for a Gumball!

Been a quiet week around the ole blog!  I've actually been hard at work making some Easter treat boxes for family, friends and co-workers using the new Papertrey ink bunny box die:)  I'm gonna need about 45 of them and while they are super cute they take a lot of steps to put together - soooooooo glad I decided not to wait 'til the last minute!  I'll be sure to share pics of the finished products when I'm done!

Anyhoo, decided to take a break from that today to play along with the current Dynamic Duos challenge:

The grouping of 2012 - 2014 Stampin' Up In Colors that Gumball Green is part of has been my least favorite so I'm really not sorry to see them go!  I took a look at the Color Coach to help me decide which color to pair it up with and Marina Mist was the winner:


I made the faux polaroid frame by die cutting a piece of gumball green pp using a rectangular and square Spellbinder Nestie.  No gumball green ink so I stamped the leaves from Papertrey ink "The Sweet Life" set with old olive on leaves die cut from gumball green cs.  And no marina mist ink so the rose from the same set was stamped using Hero Arts pool mid tone shadow ink. The Hero Arts envie pattern bg on the marina mist card base panel was also stamped using the same ink.
Other Supplies Used:  Papertrey ink white cs, Stampin' Up marina mist ribbon, Hero Arts sentiment, JoAnn's silver sequins, stick pins from my stash, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder

Thanks for taking the time to let me know your thoughts!  I'll be catching up on everyone's blogs over the next few days:)

I just love that blue rose - green and blue were always my boys' favorite colors....so they're special to me, too!

This is so pretty! Love the blue rose with your Gumball Green panel and the added embellishments :-) Thanks for playing along with us at the Dynamic Duos!

I love blue and green together and your blue rose is just so pretty, Robin! I also like the SU ribbon. I do not have any SU products other than a punch or two. You did a fab job with this color combination!!

Like the corsage pins that you incorporated with the flower ~ Brings back so many memories ('cause Mom always had a corsage for ALL special events!!) you could make a 'VINTAGE MOM' series of these cards - HAPPY EASTER will have to have a lavender edged orchid though - okay?? ;-)

What a totally gorgeous card, Robin! I think the blue was the perfect color to use with the green. I adore the pleated ribbon & of course, the Rosie Posie image which is one of my favorites!
