Dynamic Duos #50 - Happy Birthday Vicki!!

We're being kind of sneaky this week over at Dynamic Duos... it is birthday week for one of our fellow Dynamos, the fabulous Vicki Burdick!  So the rest of the team decided that we would all make birthday cards in her honour using this week's colour combination of Calypso Coral & Blushing Bride.  Our lovely founder, Lesley Croghan is hosting a linky party on her blog (here!) with a whole bunch of other Vicki fans who are helping to celebrate her big day.  Now when we were planning this a few weeks back, I knew exactly what image I'd use for Vicki's card, since we're both fans of L'il Inker Designs line of stamps called "Sugar Kissed Cottage", and this birthday image works perfectly with the girly/retro colour combo that we're working with this week:
Check out what all the other Dynamos have come up with this week over at the Dynamic Duos blog, or you can see them listed on my sidebar.  We ask that you use only the two colours shown, but neutrals (skin tones, etc.) are welcome.  If you don't have the exact colours, just use something similar like me!
This is a bittersweet post for me, as it is my last official design team project for Dynamic Duos (six months flies by when you're having fun!).  I have worked with a really wonderful and inspiring group of ladies, whose work I will continue to follow on their blogs and out there in the challenge world.  A big thanks to Lesley Croghan & Anne Marie Hile for giving me the opportunity, and for running such a well organized challenge blog.  I still plan to be a player, so you'll see me posting over there regularly!  There'll be a brand new design team being announced soon on the DD blog.
 
Patterned paper is The Sweetest Thing, Tangerine by My Mind's Eye; Cardstock is Sorbet, white & kraft, CTMH; Pink is Bazzil.  Stamp set is Sugar Kissed Cottage by L'il Inker Designs; Ink is Tuxedo Black, Memento; Copic Markers; Baker's Twine & buttons, CTMH.
