Dynamic Duos & a little Freshly Made Sketches!

Sorry I meant to have this post up earlier.. We have been having power outages since last night.. I've lost my work about 4 times now. Ha Ha .

It's time for a new Challenge at Dynamic Duos... It's "Black Toe" Week and we are using Cherry Cobbler with Black.. I love this combo! Our Dessert Option is "Sparkle" I opted for No Dessert this week. 

I'm using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week, this is a really fun Sketch! 

I used a few new Goodies that will be coming up in the Occasions Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-Bration Catalog. My card base is Basic Black with a layer of Whisper White that's been in embossed with the Decorative Dots Folder. 

I die cut the Banners from the upcoming Banner Framelits Dies. Using some Cherry Cobbler DSP and Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. The tiny banner is punched from the Banner punch you will see during Sale-a-Bration.. It's so cute! 

Then using my sewing machine I stitched a line with Black Thread. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Photopolymer set Many Thanks in Black ink and added some Black candy Dots to finish it off. 

Head over to the Dynamic Duos Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week. We hope you will join us! The Challenge is open until Thursday @ 12pm PST.
