CASE adventure in the garden for the dynamic duo

Does that sound like a Batman comic?  I totally had a crush on the Adam West Batman character in the 60's sitcom - how embarrassing is that?  I still love Batman, just can't decide which of the movies have the best version...

Today's card has nothing to do with Batman, however.  I saw this beautiful card on Lydia's Understand Blue blog oh-so-long-ago, and I kept a link open so I could admire it every day since then.  Well, I really kept the link open to remind myself to CASE it but I didn't get around to it, so I just kept admiring it.  Finally my brain made the connection between the tulips and the Dynamic Duo challenge, which is my favorite combination, currently, of Crisp Cantaloupe with Calypso Coral.  I also realized that it would work for the Catherine & Cathy Create challenge "In the Garden" - woohoo - another chance to combine challenges!
stamp sets - Backyard Basics, Dictionary, Express Yourself (hostess), Hello Lovely; ink - Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Crumb Cake; card stock - Crisp Cantaloupe, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla; 1/2" seam binding - Very Vanilla; Big Shot with Backyard Basics framelits; Stampin' Dimensionals, blender pen
I wish I had stamped that ampersand in the Crisp Cantaloupe (and stamped it off first) so it wasn't competing with the sentiment, but since the blender-colored tulips were already attached to the background before I stamped the ampersand (minor tactical error), I wasn't going to start over at that point, so it is what it is.  I still like it, though!
