Dynamic Duos challenge this week. I've always loved Rich Razzleberry, it is such a fun, bold purple and it works with a lot of different colors. I have to admit, I haven't always felt the same way about Old Olive. I've been a demonstrator for 14 years and it's only been in the past few years that Old Olive has gotten regular use with my stamps. Maybe it's because my old go-to greens were all retired a few years ago, maybe it's because Olive is more of a trendy color, and then maybe it's because I've just gotten out of my comfort zone and have started using it. I found that it isn't such a bad color after all, in fact, I really like it now. Funny how out tastes change over the years.
This card is a quick one to stamp--two stamps, that's it! The layering is what takes the time, which isn't too bad either. I textured the card base with the polka dot textured impressions embossing folder and then layered some pieces of the Polka Dot Parade designer series paper on card stock. Under the Razzleberry layer, I stuck two banners from the bitty banners framelits (cut with my Big Shot). I cut out my stamped layer with my 2-1/2" circle punch and mounted it on top of everything with Stampin' Dimensionals after I tied a bit of white stitched grosgrain around everything. The bird stamp is from Betsy's Blossoms and the greeting is from Sassy Salutations. Enjoy!
