Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! It is black tie week here at Dynamic Duos and we are pairing it up with a colour which has come back to join the colour family once more ~ Pear Pizzazz! And if you feel like adding an extra challenge, have desert and make your project with a Plant Theme in mind :)

We would love for you to come and join in the fun with us! Our challenge ends on Thursdays at Noon (PDT). We have a few rules to keep things fun and fair!
  1. Any project is welcome...paper crafts, scrapbooking, digital, or crafts...
  2. Please ONLY use the two colours listed for your project. Neutrals are welcome.
  3. Combine us with as many other challenges as you would like, except other colour challenges.
  4. Please add our graphic to your blog with a link back to us.
  5. Any offensive or inappropriate posts will be deleted respectively. Thank you.
And also this week at The Paper Players, their challenge is a CAS card with bling and at Inkspirational their inspiration photo fit my card to a T! So I thought I would play along over there too :)

My Challenges:

While searching through Pinterest one day I came across a gorgeous simple style card which I knew I just had to try out at one point. So this is my rendition of that such card. Sometimes simple is the way to go :)
