Dynamic Duos #86: Love You So

It's time for another color challenge at Dynamic Duos!  This week we are back to creations that are "Subtly Yours" using the colors: Pool Party and Pink Pirouette.  Here's the challenge:
And here's the card I made. 
Don't you just love the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die?  And how about the DS paper?  I LOVE this years Sale-a-bration paper!  This piece has little Pool Party flowers on it. It's so pretty.  I absolutely love it.

To make the banners, I used the Banners Framelits Dies. The Pink Pirouette banner has not been altered, however I did cut the Pool Party framelit  piece a smidge smaller in width so that I could insert just half of the paper and cut just the banner end out . This way I could make the banner as long as I wanted.  I also cut about 1/4" off each side of it to make it thinner.  After embossing the heart from the Perfect Pennants stamp set, I free hand paper pierced around it.   

 Here's a close up picture showing the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die.  I ran it thru my Big Shot twice- once with Whisper White and then again with Pink Pirouette.
STAMPS: Geometrical and Perfect Pennants.
INK: Memento Black and Versamark
PAPER: Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Sweet Sorbet* DSP
ACCESSORIES: Hexagon Thinlit Die, Banner Framelits Dies, Petite Petals punch, White Baker's Twine, Basic Rhinestones and White embossing powder.
