Freshly Made Dynamic Duos

Happy Monday!
Today I am happy it's Monday because it's a LONG weekend and no work for me :)

Stamping and cleaning are on my to do list today.
Gotta have some balance, right? 

Saturday afternoon I sat down for a bit and made a couple of cards for the Dynamic Duos Challenge and the Freshly Made Sketch.
Here is one of them using a cute A la Mode from MFT.
I don't own the Strawberry Slush colour from SU! yet so I subbed the PTI Hibiscus Burst. 
The background was created with the Spots & Dots background from MFT and was stamped in Daffodil Delight onto the cardstock. A little bit of Stardust Stickles were added to the balloons after I'd coloured with Copics.
Stamps: ALM Big Birthday Wishes, MFT Spots and DotsPaper: White, Daffodil Delight, Hibiscus BurstInk: Memento black, Daffodil DelightAccessories: copics, Hibiscus burst ribbon, daffodil delight seam binding, Stardust Stickles
Then I decided to make a quick card using the MFT Party Balloons stamp set and die.
This time I die cut the balloons and then stamped with Versamark and clear embossed for some shine.
Somehow I have white flecks in my embossing powder :(  Looks like a trip to the LSS to get a new container!
I know....good excuse eh?
The HAPPY was cut with a new die from MFT called Accent It - Celebrate.
The birthday stamp is from the free set I received last month with my order called You're Invited.
Stamps: MFT You're Invited, Party BalloonsPaper: White, Hibiscus Burst, Daffodil DelightInk: Versamark, Black, Daffodil DelightAccessories: Mat pack and paper piercer, heat gun, clear ep, party balloon dies, Accent It Celebrate, Dimensionals
