Dynamic Sympathy

I'm playing again this week with the Dynamic Duo Challenge - this week we are to use yellow and black with the optional dessert of dry embossing -  and since dessert is my favorite part of any meal (!) -  I used it on my card.   I love these Dynamic Duo Challenges -  using just 2 colors is right up my alley!

I used some fun new stamps from Rubbernecker on my card  -  the Sympathy and squares back ground are part of a new collage set of stamps that you can mix and match  - and the little 'with' word is just one of the many, many little words in the Box Word Set.

I die cut the filigree border and adhered it to the back of the stamped panel and layered that panel over the Swiss Dots embossed panel with foam tape.  Then I added the black pearls inside the circles.

That's it from me today! 

I'll be back Thursday for the Waltzingmouse Blog Party (postponed from May 17)  see my side bar for info!

This is a lovely sympathy card and proves that you don't always have to use subdued colours.
