Dynamic Duos Challenge #51 - And a 1st for me!

My first challenge as a member of the Design Team at Dynamic Duos is today's  DD Challenge #51.  I'm so thrilled to be a part of this super talented DT, and this is my first experience on a Design Team!  I hope that I can provide you with a little inspiration and encourage you to play along with us every week!

Well, let's get to this week's challenge, shall we???
I love these summery colors!  And, believe me, here in northern Illinois we need some summer...or at least spring.  It's been a long winter.  Take a look at these sweet colors.

I need to restock my stash of sympathy cards and I think these colors are perfect for the occasion.

I just bought this very intricate die by Memory Box.  I knew exactly how I wanted to use it.  I die cut the Serefiina heart from Baja Blue, then also cut it from my white panel.  I inlaid the the blue into the negative space in the white panel.  Sounds easy, huh?  It took a little longer than I thought, because the die cut is so delicate.  But, I'm really pleased with the results.
Thanks so much for visiting!   Now...go check out the inspiration from my fellow teamies at Dynamic Duos!

Cardstock: whisper white, daffodil delight, baja breeze (Stampin' Up!), white (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: onyx black (Versafine)
Stamps: words of comfort (Close To My Heart)
Die: serefina heart (Memory Box)
Other: yellow gems (Recollections)
