Flowers from the garden - Dynamic Duos #57

Hey, another Saturday post with Dynamic Duos!  This week it's Dynamic Duos #57.  We have a very striking color combo for you this week.  And...there is a "dessert" option.  Just take a look.
Uh huh.  I told you, didn't I?  So, if you choose to, you can use the Dessert Option of Plant Theme, along with these great colors.  I have a new die that I wanted to play with, and it fits this theme perfectly (I think so, anyway!).  I recently won a gift certificate from one of the online stores, so this die was one of the items I chose.
Here's my card.

I used a Spellbinders die to cut the rectangular opening in my card base.  The green panel was stamped using Versamark, then the die cut tulips were glued to it.  I adhered that panel behind the "window", after stamping my sentiment.  I felt the card still needed something.  I finally cut 3 very narrow strips of cardstock and adhered them below the window.
I hope you'll play along with all us at Dynamic Duos.  We love to see what you create!
