Dynamic Duos ... getting Eggy!

Happy Saturday everyone.. I hope this Auto Post works for me today because I will be away from my computer until tomorrow. I get a little Mommy time away.. Whoo Hoo! It's Saturday and that means time for a new challenge at Dynamic Duos... It's a  "Subtly Yours" week and we're using the colors Wisteria Wonder & So Saffron.. and of course if you don't have these colors in your stash you are welcome to use any similar colors from another brand. I also used the current sketch from MoJo Monday

I decided to create an Easter card, but I didn't really have any Easter sets to work with. I think I only own one.. eeek!! I do however have these cute Balloon Die Cuts (Simon Says Stamp) that I thought would make perfect eggs and they did!!! 

I started with a White card base and then I added 2 layers of SU DSP in So Saffron & Wisteria Wonder. Then I die cut 3 Balloons and trimmed off the ends to create the egg shape. I colored them with a Blending sponge and So Saffron & Wisteria Wonder ink. 

I used some Stencils (Heidi Swapp) to create the dots & chevron patterns on the eggs. I cut a banner from a piece of white card stock and stamped "Happy Easter" using a Alphabet set ( Lawn Fawn). Then I added a piece of SU Stitched grosgrain ribbon along the So Saffron panel...too cute! 

Head over to the Dynamic Duos challenge blog and see what the other Design Team members created this week.. The challenge will be open until Thursdat @ 12pm PST. We can't wait to see what you create with these fun colors. The MoJo Monday Linky will close on Sunday @ 12pm MT. 

Thanks for stopping by.. I hope you are having a great weekend so far!
