Well, this is a sad post and a happy post all wrapped into one....were do I begin? This is my last post as a Dynamic Duos designer. :( I have had a blast being on this design team and am so darn sad to see it come to an end. I got to meet wonderful ladies, that were on the team with me, and have gotten to know each of them a little more personally than I otherwise would have just surfing their blogs. I admire each one for their talent and have learned some tricks and tips along the way. Six months went by sooooo fast, I can't even begin to tell you. It has been a pleasure and a highlight of my stamping career to be a part of this team. I look forward to playing along in many, many more challenges with the Dynamic Duos and wish the new crop of designers as much fun as I had! I can't wait to see who Lesley has chosen.....
So much for the sad, now onto the happy! This week was fellow designer Vicki Burdick's birthday. Lesley has set up a linky for us to link up birthday cards for Vicki. Our design team desided to make all of our challenge cards for dear Vicki. The colors this week are Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral.
I also used the sketch from Mojo Monday 290.
I chose to go with one of my new stamp sets, Postage Due. I love the vintage feel of the stamp set.
I used the punched postage stamps for the four squares and the flower/script/bike image for my bottom panel. I stamped most everything in Blushing Bride, mainly because I don't own any cardstock in that color. I will need to purchase some now that it is being introduced into the subtles family.
I sponged everything with Crumb Cake to antique it. I also embossed the bottom panel with my Vintage Wallpaper EF, for more antique feel. A little natural trim, Calypso Coral organdy ribbon, a brad and some pearls and this card was finished off.
So, Happy Birthday to Vicki! I know she has been thoroughly suprised. And, farwell Dynamic Duos Design team.....I'll see you in the gallery! ♥
