Dynamic Duo's #23

I don't know what happened to my Dynamic Duos post - or the pictures ... but they have completely disappeared.  However, I have re-downloaded the pictures from my camera and can still get the card into the challenge before it closes. Here are this week's challenge colours:

... and I also used a recent sketch from Retro Sketches:

 Here is my card:

Tangerine Tango and Old Olive? LOVE both colours - I think Tangerine Tango is my new favourite shade of orange.  I kept is simple but I'm really happy with how the card turned out.  I stamped the flower and flower center onto white card stock, punched them out and attached them together with foam tape and a tiny green gem. 

I cut a wide banner from a scrap of Old Olive, ran it through an embossing folder, then embossed a white panel to attach to the Old Olivie card base.  There is a white panel inside the card, where the blossom was stamped off the bottom white corner as well as stamped on the envelope.

No greeting on the front - just the way I like it.

Mixed Bunch stamp set, blossom punch, 1" circle punch, embossing folders, Old Olive card stock, Tangering Tango ink - Stampin' Up.  :-)

Thanks for stopping by today!
