Dynamic duo .....

.... Good afternoon.  It's been cold, grey and very windy today - perfect for playing in my craft room.  Consequently, I'm back with another card for a couple of challenges:

Stamps: Uniko Studios - Pure Florals-Gerbera
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Tangerine Tango, Old Olive
Accessories:  SU - Design Paper - Tangerine Tango, Old Olive; SU Card - Crumb Cake; WMS - Twine; Card from stash

I have to admit that I wasn't at all sure what to make with these colours - they are very bright!  However, yesterday I got this lovely Gerbera stamp from Uniko Studios.  It's just perfect for the challenge.  I added two neutrals of white and crumb cake to the palette and used Stampin' Up! design paper for the challenge colours.  I stamped the flower on SU design paper and hear embossed with clear powder, then cut it out.  I stamped the leaves onto white card - one is the first impression and the other the second!  I attached the flower and leaves to the white panel and added some twine and mounted the whole lot to the card with dimensional tape.  I finished off with a simple sentiment stamped in both colours.

Autumn has most definitely arrived in Northville.  The temperature has only reached 8°C (46°F) today - quite a bit cooler than is usual for this time of year, and it's been windy too making it feel even colder.  Still pretty though.  Last weekend I took lots of photos - trees in full Autumn glory, and skeletons decorating Northville!!  Looks wonderful.  Here are a couple of photos, but if you click here you see the photos on Flickr.

That really is all for today - off to get some dinner!  See you tomorrow!

Once again, lovely cards since my last visit. This one is so pretty and I love your photographs too. The Autumn one is so gorgeous and I had a good chuckle or two at the skeletons :o)

What a gorgeous card, Deborah! It looks like the colors were perfectly inspired by that beautiful photo you snapped. The skeleton photo is so fun too. Thank you so much for joining us this week at Dynamic Duos! :)
