DYNAMIC DUOS #1: STAMPIN' UP!'S GROWING GREEN

I am very excited to play along with a new challenge on the block - Dynamic Duos.  I do love a colour challenge, so I can see this site becoming a firm favourite.

Here's the very first challenge - a beautiful fresh colour combination:





I dug out my very neglected "Growing Green" stamp set, incorporated a bit of paper-piecing, and this is what I came up with:




Stamps: Growing Green, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Card: Pool Party, Whisper White
DSP: Pool Party Patterns Designer Series Paper
Ink: Lucky Limeade stampin' pad, Pool Party stampin' pad and marker, Versamark inkpad
Other: Lucky Limeade designer brads, Pool Party ruffled ribbon, white embossing powder, corner rounder punch, Simply Scored tool, mini glue dots, stampin' dimensionals
