DYSU #38 - Duo

Morning All,
Our challenge over at Do You Stack Up this week is titled Duo which means we want to see your design elements in twos or pairs. How easy is that!!

Our sponsors this week are:
Stretch 'n Bubbles - Choice of 4 digi stamps

JLJ Designs - $10 Gift Certificate

The Stamping Boutique - Choice of 5 digital stamps

For my card I have used this great image from Stretch 'n Bubbles called "Tribute Flower". I dragged two of the flowers into my graphics programme, flipped one and made it slightly smaller and then merged them with the sentiment.

A bit of stitching, a ribbon, a bow and some pearls and the card was complete. 

Medium - Promarkers
Paper - Freebie from a magazine - Pampered Pets
Ribbon, bow and pearls - from stash
Sentiment - Freebie from Scrapalicious

Pop on over to the DYSU Challenge blog and take a look at the rest of the DT's creations - the duos are very varied and will definitely inspire you to join in with us this week.

Before I go, I want to take a moment to say goodbye to two of the team members who are sadly leaving us. Frances and Tenny - you will both be missed and I wish you both success and happiness xx  There is a small DT call going on over at DYSU - if you are interested, you will need to be quick as it closes on 24th September.

That's all from me today.
Denise xx
