Morning Meadow for Two Challenges

Happy Monday, All! I hope everybody had a nice weekend. I had a super busy and mostly crafty weekend for a change. I got several projects accomplished, including this one which I designed for two challenges. It features the Morning Meadow Stamp Set , which is one of my new faves. 

The first challenge is from Dynamic Duos. This week we are invited to create our own Dynamic Duo using Basic Gray. As soon as I saw this challenge I knew what other color I wanted to use. In my straightening up process the other day a scrap of Basic Gray landed beside a scrap of Crisp Cantaloupe and I thought they looked awesome together.

This great sketch was provided by Deb at Sketch Frenzy Friday. I was inspired immediately and visualized a doily for the circle element.

This card has the illusion of being clean and simple because of all the white space, yet it has lots of interesting little layers. I used DSP from two packages, Birthday Essentials and Epic Day (the tape measure). I used two embellishments in Crisp Cantaloupe, Ruffled Ribbon and In Color Boutique Details. The focal image was colored with markers.
