It's a Dynamic Duo on a Merry Monday!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

If it's as hot where you live as it is here in Spring, TX, I pray for your air conditioner and your patience!

My card today is a combination of the color challenge at Dynamic Duos and the sketch challenge at Merry Monday.

I used the beautiful "Bells & Boughs" Stampin' Up set.  I couldn't wait to get my hands on this set when it first came out.  However, I have struggled to use it for some reason.  Go figure!  

I kept this card pretty clean and simple with no sponged edges, which is really hard for me!  I added just a touch of shimmer by outlining the bells with my gold Atyou Spica glitter pen.  I loved working with this color combination.  I use Always Artichoke frequently, but sometimes I forget about River Rock.  I had my doubts about that color initially, but it really is both beautiful and versatile.

Stay cool, my friends, and enjoy the rest of your week!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
