Unscripted Sketches Meets the Dynamic Duo


This week's colors for the Dynamic Duo color challenge are Island Indigo and Pool Party from Stamp It Up. 

Twilight was clearly an equivalent color for Island Indigo, but I was not sure what to substitute for Pool Party.  Then  I saw that Karen Day, a member of the design team, had used paper from the retired Cuisin' pack, so I followed her lead and chose Twilight and Juniper as my colors to use with this layout from Unscripted Sketches:

Here is the inside of the card:
Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time, Hansi
