Happy Monday!

Just popping in quickly to share a card I made for this week's Dynamic Duos.  We were asked to use Cajun Craze and Island Indigo.  At first, I was a bit hesitant with the color combo, but after pulling out the only DSP that had one of this week's color, I got an idea!

My card:

I started out with Whisper White, followed with Island Indigo card stock.  The top layer is from Fan Fair DSP.  I then took a piece of Cajun Craze, added some texture with the Square Lattice Folder and affixed it on the bottom of the card.  I found a vintage button card in my stash and adhered 3 buttons to it.  On the black button, I tied a bow using Island Indigo Baker's Twine.  I used A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge for the scissors, and added a piece of card stock between the scissor blades.  I also added a tiny rhinestone in the middle.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set, stamped with Island Indigo ink and cropped with Bitty Banners Framelits Die.  

I'm also submitting this card into Seize the Birthday Anything Goes Challenge.

Have a great week!
