Dynamic Duos #38

Hello my friends!

While hubby and my girls were watching the Super Bowl, I snuck in my craft room and created a card for this week's Dynamic Duos.  This week, we were asked to use Real Red and Pretty in Pink.  These colors are perfect for another Valentine's Card! 

My Card:

I wanted to make a fun card and use the Owl Punch as my focal point.  The base is Whisper White, followed by Pink cardstock.  The "XO" paper is from My Mind's Eye Love Me and the pink stripe designer paper is from my stash.  I embossed a piece of red cardstock using the Perfect Polka Dots Folder.  Since I don't have a heart punch small enough for the card, I used the Cricut Cartridge Create a Critter for the 2 balloons, and it worked perfectly!  The sentiment is computer generated, since all of the sentiments I have were too long!  After a couple of hiccups, my card was done!  I really liked how it came out.  Right before taking a picture of it, I added 2 small pearls to the balloons.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
