Hi.  I wanted to share a dynamic duo trio of colors with you today.  I am sooooo in love with this combo of black (I used dark grey...charcoal, but that is the new black right?!), rich razzleberry and the option of gold. I was totally inspired by this combo over at the Dynamic Duo's site.  WOW!  

It was very serendipitous that I popped in to my local craft store the other day and found these We R Memory Keepers Journal Cards on SALE!  AWESOME!  But the star of the show here (in my opinion) are the stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop.  The blooms are from Elegant Flowers. I colored them using a little melon mambo, a LOT of rich razzleberry and a touch of elegant eggplant for my gradient (mostly retired SU! colors).  The sentiment is from Monogram it and the stars are from the New Years set that retired (booo-hoo!).  I stamped the stars in Delacata gold and added a little touch of gold twine.  For the final touch, I added a tiny bit of smudged gold onto the top of the flowers (it was actually a happy accident, but shhhh, don't tell!)  Here is a close up where you can kind of see the gold on the blooms.

I love the result and I love this color combo!  YUMMY!

I am also entering this into the CAS-ology (this week's theme is garden) and Retrosketches and Addicted to Stamps and More (make your mark!).
