Dynamic Duos #60 - A Sympathy Card

Hi!  It's time for a new color challenge at Dynamic Duos.  Wait until you see the very summery colors for Dynamic Duos #60.  Here you go!
I have to admit, I've not used much of my summer starfruit cardstock.  I tend to use softer yellows.  But once I started playing and experimenting with this color...I really like the results.  :)
I'm so glad that Lesley chose this color combo, because it pushed me a bit out of my comfort zone.  That's one of the things I love about challenges!

I used Sahara Sand card stock for one of my neutrals; as the card base.  I've matted with the 2 challenge colors, then used linen textured card stock for the other 3 layers.  The sentiment panel is popped up with dimensional tape.  I love the look of the sentiment stamped in Gumball Green.  It adds to the soft feeling I was going for.
Thanks for spending a little time here.  Now, go take a look at what my super talented Dynamic Duos team mates have designed for your inspiration.  We hope you'll play along!
