Dynamic Dous #68 Challenge using Flower Shop Stamp Set

So for the very first time, I decided to take part in a blog challenge from Dynamic Duos.  I have been following their blog for about a year and have used their color ideas from time to time, but never submitted a card for their challenge until today.  

I love the color purple, but don't use Perfect Plum very often. I used Perfect Plum card stock and a small card stock strip of Primrose Petals.  The grey card stock strip is shimmery and purchased at a local scrapbook store.  I used a flower stamp from Stampin' Up's Flower Shop stamp set, which I absolutely love!!  I stamped flowers randomly on white card stock in Stampin' Up's Perfect Plum, Primrose Petals and Smoky Slate.  I also used a dots background stamp from Stamps by Judith in Smoky Slate, too.  I then put the white card stock through my Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday Embossing Folder by Cuttlebug, too.  I then took a sponge and sponged over the embossed image with Smoky Slate to bring out the words.  I also punched out another flower with the coordinating Stampin' Up Pansy Punch.  I would have never thought to put Perfect Plum and Primrose Petals together, but I loved how it turned out and adding the Smoky Slate was just icing on the "card".  Enjoy and thank you for stopping by my blog.
