Love - a birthday card

Since I did all of my house cleaning yesterday, I rewarded myself with a little time at my craft table this afternoon.  Hmmm.  Like I need an excuse to stamp.  Ha!

I'm playing along in 2 challenges with this card that I made for my husband's birthday.  He's a sweetie. :o)

Dynamic Duos - DD#47

Retro sketches - rs#58

I combined the two challenges like this ~

I have to admit, when I saw the colors for the "bold & sassy" challenge at Dynamic Duos, I wasn't sure how successful I would be at combining them.  As it turns out...I'm really liking the result!  I stamped some text onto the Pool Party panel using the same color ink.  I added some texture to the Cherry Cobbler panel.  And the sentiment is embossed with Cherry Cobbler EP. Nearly every layer is attached with foam tape.  Oh, those pretty twines?  They were wrapped around a purchase I made from Avery Elle.  They matched the DD challenge colors perfectly.  Well, that's about it for now; I've got one more post to write.
Thanks for taking a look!
