Be Thankful DD#78

Good Afternoon and Good Morning to some friends. Hope this post finds you having a great day no matter what time of the day it is where you are.

It is my second week as a Design Team for Dynamic Duos and I have to tell you it's been amazing. I love seeing all of your entries first hand and commenting on your cards. I know what it feels like to have someone make a nice comment about your hard work. We have another challenge starting today and I have to say I love these colors. They remind me of Fall and since it's my favorite season of the year I had a fun time making a card.

It is "Subtly Yours" week and the color challenge is

I always find myself reaching for Crumb Cake as it's a great "go to" color for just about anything. I haven't used Always Artichoke in a while so it was good to use it. Actually most of the stuff used on my card for this week was either used for the first time or I had to wipe a little bit of dust off the package because it hadn't been used in a while. I need to "shop my stash" more often instead of buying more but then again what's the fun in that, right?

I kept my card simple but I loved the way it turned out. 

I love the whimsical look of the banners and the font of the thankful. The die set that this goes with is one of my favorites! The hearts have some glossy accents to make them look shiny. After I took a picture of the card I realized it made the hearts look black but I can promise you they are Always Artichoke. 

I shared a project a few days ago with these same colors because I think it went perfect. Once I made the card I couldn't stop myself from making a 3D project as well. Hope this inspires you to take things around your house one step further and make them pretty. 

Hope you will join us this week at Dynamic Duos Challenge and have lots of fun with this one!
