Back to business!!

Well I must say its been really hard to get my head out of the Prague clouds!! But it has been a week since we were there so I am attempting to knuckle down to normal business!! SO far this week I have had a craft session with the Brownies and a workshop with a new group of ladies and tonight and tomorrow I have my Scrapbook clubs.

On Tuesday it was Robin's birthday and I must say I was a bit with the cards. This is the one I made from the boys. Its one of my favourite colour combos for men, Bashful Blue, Old Olive and Soft Suede.

I used a Soft Suede card blank and then some DSP from the Subtles stack in Bashful Blue. I had the idea to create a Ross and Evan in the bunting and was really pleased how it turned out! Didn't realise though until I saw these photos that one of the "d's" is smudged!!

The sentiment is from Curly Cute and the one at the bottom is from the Level 1 Hostess set Afterthoughts! Punched out with the Decorative Label and then layered another one up around it.
Hope you like my card, must admit I really enjoyed making this one!
