Mustard Silhouettes, DD94 & SSSC211

Greetings on this wonderful Wednesday, my friends! It's a two challenge day for me today. I love playing in challenges and wish I had time to play in more of them. I've been playing along with so many lately that sometimes I wonder if I can think on my own and make a card without one!

I was happy to see the color combo at Dynamic Duos this week as it gave me an opportunity to pull out some retired goodies in More Mustard, including the cool houndstooth pattern from the Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP. There is always a great sketch at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, and I fell in love with this one right away.

I tried to add more details to my card, such as piercing and embellishments, but nothing looked right so I decided this card wanted to be simple. Sometimes our projects take on a life of their own, don't you think?
