When I saw this week's Dynamic Duos colour combo, I immediately decided to make a baby card.

I gathered up a variety of Designer Series Papers in Daffodil Delight and Baja Breeze, and punched a dozen 1 1/4" squares.  After adhering them to a piece of cardstock, I ran it through my Big Shot using Stampin' Up!'s Top Note die.  I do love me a "quilted" Top Note! 
Here's the end result, once I'd added a few embellishments and details:

Stamps: A Fitting Occasion, Beyond Plaid
Card: Baja Breeze, Whisper White
DSP: Sunshine & Sprinkles, Polka Dot Parade, Twitterpated, Patio Party, Floral District and Daffodil Delight Patterns Designer Series Papers
Ink: Baja Breeze and Daffodil Delight stampin' pads, White gel pen
Other: Top Note Bigz die, Simply Scored with Metric Plate and Borders Scoring Plate, Hearts A Flutter framelits, Square Lattice embossing folder, 1 1/4" square punch, Curly Label punch, 1" Circle punch, sponge daubers, Twitterpated buttons (retired), Essentials Paper Piercing Pack with Stampin' Pierce Mat and Paper-Piercing Tool, Baja Breeze seam binding, glue dots, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig
