Dynamic Duos Challenge #1 - Masked Blooms

Ever since I heard about the new Dynamic Duos Challenge site on Bronwyn's blog (DT Member), I've been waiting patiently for the first challenge.  I was very excited to discover that the inaugural challenge requires two of my favourite colours - Pool Party & Lucky Limeade.  Here's a peek:-

I was inspired by my lovely bloggin' buddy, Andrea, to try some masked flowers, after seeing her beautiful tulip card. I wanted to keep the design crisp & clean, with the flowers taking all the attention, so the actual card & sentiment are very simple:-

To create the petals & leaves, I've used a stencil & masks, created with the "wing" section of SU's bird punch & sponged on the colour.
