Off to the park with Stace & Bree … then shopping & lunch! Sounds wonderful … doesn’t it!? In a hurry … so here is this week’s Dynamic Duos #3 Challenge. I did mean to emboss the black strip (the ‘dessert option’ of the challenge) … but totally forgot until after the ribbon and buttons were attached! Yes … it was a bit too late by then! Thankfully the ‘dessert option’ is optional … so I can still enter this in the challenge. I did add the buttons and bows to this card … so I could also enter it into the latest Allsorts Challenge #155 “Buttons & Bows”! 😀
My stamping friend Leonie had a spare “Fresh Vintage” stamp set … and passed it onto me! Isn’t she a sweetie! 😀 I’m not sure if you can see the border stamping behind the ‘With Sympathy’ phrase? You can click to enlarge the photo here to see it a little better. (Sorry about the photo quality! This was a hard card to photograph because of the contrast between the black and yellow colours! The buttons & bows are a sweet accent too! But … this is one of those cards that just don’t seem to show up well in a photo. The colours for this challenge are so beautiful together … and IRL … this is really lovely!
Well … I didn’t get this finished before our shopping trip! Bree had a lovely time at the “Park & Play” for Kids Fest. It was a beautiful day to be out in the sunshine! 🙂 And … it was nice to wander around our new extended shopping centre with Stace for a while. Lunch was really yummy! 😉
