Dynamic Duos #55!

Oh do we have yummy colors for you this week at Dynamic Duos! I totally love this pairing:

This combination was perfect for my duo of butterflies stacked over a bunch of banners. You like?


I have a tendency to forgot about my Stampin' Up! paper piercing templates. I have them on my counter in my stamp room to remind me and I still forget I have them. See how a few pierced holes makes my sentiment layer really pop? And it only takes minutes to complete. The butterflies are from the April stamp set "Best of Butterflies" and I used my "Bitty Butterflies Punch" to cut them out. Note how I added "Mini Brads" and bended the legs for the feelers :


I really hope you will consider joining our challenge this week. Challenges are a great way to learn from others and to challenge yourself. You also meet so very neat people! Have a great day and I'll be seeing you tomorrow!
