Betsy's Blossoms for the Stampin' Queens...

...and Dynamic Duos for REAL this time - LOL!

If you saw this post from Saturday, you'll know I completely messed up the colours for this week's Dynamic Duos challenge. Sometimes, I just TOTALLY get ahead of myself, go in with guns blazing and the result is...well...less than stellar - HA!!!

Of course, I really liked the card I made on Saturday, but since it didn't meet the challenge colours, I did a do-over (colour wise, not design wise) and came up with the Stampin' Queens card for today.

Here's our Stampin' Queens sketch for this week:

Here's the Dynamic Duo colours as a reminder:

And here's my card:

I had a Daffodil Delight card base sitting out, so I decided to use that as my jumping off point. Then I added the black layer. I added the ribbon and then stamped my image on Whisper White using Daffodil Delight. I masked off the little bird and added the leaf/stem in Basic Black. I then added a Daffodil Delight mat and adhered the image panel to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Betsy's Blossoms is coming out in the new catalogue on June 1st and you're going to LOVE it! It's SUCH a cute set!

What do you think?
