I seem to be into one-word titles this weekend.

I love it when a plan comes together. When I saw the current (current, I KNOW!) sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch!:

I knew immediately which stamp I'd use: my Paper Smooches Potpourri set! Here's what came out:

Sorry it's so dark. Something is more off than normal on either my camera or my lights. And yes, I lightened and brightened it in my editing software. Must address this, and soon. 

As I stood looking at the black on white, thinking it needed color, I remembered the current Dynamic Duos challenge is:

so I colored the center with my Distress Barn Door marker, and added some red pearls to the centers.

For the left and right sides of the card, I employed the same technique I did on this card and just scored both sides in opposite directions.

I like it! :)

Okay, I'm going back in to do a few more challenges.

Thanks for stopping by!
