Happy Birthday - Dynamic Duos #58

Hey, it's Saturday...finally!  It's time for Dynamic Duos #58 color challenge.  Take a look at the colors Lesley chose for us this week.
I have to admit, when I first saw this combo I thought of autumn.  Very rich, warm earth tones.  But since summer just arrived, I'm not ready for autumn yet!  So I used the colors with a nice bright white cardstock for a light summery feel.

I was happy to get the chance to use my Stampin' Up! tangerine tango embossing powder.  For so long I had only neutral embossing powders - what was I thinking?  When SU introduced these fun bright colors, I had to snap them up!
Anyway, I colored in just a few hearts and loops with my cajun craze marker.  The sentiment is embossed in white. Then I added a few pearls and popped up the sentiment panel with foam tape.
I hope you'll play along with us this week.  Each week I'm so amazed at all of the beautiful entries in our challenges.  I would love to see what you create!
Thanks for taking a look today.
