Dynamic Duos#100: Triple Threat and last DD challenge!

Sad news alert!!!! The creator of Dynamic Duos: Lesley Croghan and its manager Anne Marie Hile have decided to end the Dynamic Duos challenge blog!  OH MY!  
As a result, THIS is the last challenge you can participate in for Dynamic Duos!  If you've never played along, don't miss out, come join us for the last Dynamic Duos challenge! Here's the LAST challenge:

And here's what I made:

I first embossed the flower image from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set with white embossing powder onto Whisper White card stock.  I then sponged So Saffron and Pool Party ink randomly around the image.  Then I stamped the flower image a few times in the background using Pool Party ink.

The words are from the hostess set called Simply Sketched.  Although, I love the set of words that go with the Gifts of Kindness stamp set, I really wanted to use my Word Bubble Dies, and this sentiment worked perfectly for the layout I was trying to achieve.  :)

STAMPS: Gifts of Kindness and Simply Sketched
INK: Pool Party and So Saffron
PAPER: Smokey Slate, So Saffron and Pool Party
ACCESSORIES: Word Bubble Dies, Versamark pad, White Embossing powder, Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon, Finishing Touches Edgelits, paper piercing tool and guide, Fancy Fan Embossing folder, Itty Bitty Shapes punch, Basic Pearls and retired DS paper.

Okay, so now you have seen my Triple Threat, why don't you take the time to play along! And please make sure to stop by and see the other design team members creations.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
