Dynamic Duos #90 - Thoughts & Prayers

This week's challenge on Dynamic Duos was to use the colors of Black and Daffodil Delight.  It was definitely a challenge for me this week.  I've never put these two colors together, other than for a bumble bee.

Stampin' Up's "Daffodil Delight" card stock and ink
Momento's "Tuxedo Black" Ink  
Stampin' Up's "French Script"
Stampin' Up's "Thoughts and Prayers" stamp set
Stampin' Up's sentiment "just because I care" -- I couldn't find which stamp set it came from...sorry.
Black card stock from local scrapbook store
White card stock from Gina K
Stampin' Up's "Label Collection" die cuts
EK Success butterfly punch
Black ribbon from Michaels
DMC floss from local store
Button from Stampin' UP collection

I started with a black card base and then mounted "DD" card stock.  I inked up  "French Script" with "DD" ink and made a watermark effect on the "DD" card stock.  I used Gina K's White card stock and again inked up the "French Script" stamp with "DD" and off stamped it once and then onto the white cs.  I inked up the tree stamp with "Tuxedo Black" ink and used one of the dies and cut out the tree image.  I punched out 3 butterflies with an old punch and added some tiny pearls to each butterfly.  I also sponged around the edges and sponged lightly over the cut image with "DD".  I mounted the butterflies with pop dots and pop dotted the image, too, and put a black ribbon behind it.  I cut out a flag from left over Gina K cs and added the "just because I care" sentiment in "Tuxedo Black" and sponged around the edges with "DD" and also off stamped "French Script" on the flag.  I pop dotted the flag to the card and  finished the flag off  by adding a button with black DMC floss to one end with a pearl center and the third punched butterfly to the other end.  Thank you Dynamic Duos Team for making me think outside the box.  Thanks for stopping by.
