So Saffron & Certainly Celery

When I first saw the color combination from Dynamic Duos I thought it would be easy to create a card using the specific color combination.  To be honest, I seriously struggled.  I had all of these ideas in my head and none of them worked out.  I think I remade the card 3 or 4 times and it is still not awesome.

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
Stamp: Button Buddies, Bloomin' Marvelous
Cardstock: Whisper White, So Saffron, Certainly Celery
Ink: So Saffron, Certainly Celery
Extras: Ribbon (Michaels), Punch (EK Success), Twine (The Twinery)

Challenge Entered:


  1. I'm glad you stuck with it. I think your card turned out great. Thank you for playing along with us at Dynamic Duos this week.

  2. I had exactly the same problem! Very pretty and springlike card!

  3. I know what it's like to struggle with the ideas in my head and getting them onto paper! But you've done a lovely job with this color combo. Your card is beautiful. ;-) Thank you for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week.

  4. Hi Shelly, yes, sometimes too many ideas can be as difficult as not enough... I like your gorgeous ribbon and the cute little buttons in the centre of the flowers with twine. Lovely use of this week's challenge colours. Thank you for sharing your card with us this week at Dynamic Duos.

  5. Great card...I hope you'll link up at 52 Card Pickup again this week!
