Dynamic Yellow

Hello!

I feel like I've been away forever! I had a busy week-end last week-end. Then I went to Canberra for work for a few days (it's a bit chilly down there at the moment). And I got back last night, but I've been sick with a horrible head cold - painful throat, head full of gunk, and brain not functioning!  I've missed my cards so very much so tonight I dashed off a quick one before I throw myself at that welcoming bed. :-)

Dynamic Duos this week has one of my favourite colour combinations: Yellow and Black.
I just realised I didn't use the dessert option of dry embossing (although I had intended to). Since it is called an "option", I'm hoping it doesn't have to be in the mix to qualify for entry! As there are only a few hours to go before the linky list closes, and my bed is calling my name loudly, I really am not going to go and make another card at this stage. :-)

Here is my card:
I used SU! Daffodil Delight and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Stamps are PTI Rosie Posie, and Think Big Favorites #13. Dies are Mat Stack #1 and Mat Stack #1 Layerz, oh and Rosie Posie. Card is Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

It's nice to be back. I hope to make a few more cards this week-end. I have a whole bunch I started last week-end for another challenge, and I have plans to finish them, hopefully, if I can drag myself out of bed. I am way behind in my blog visiting and commenting. I will be back at that sometime soon, too! I miss everyone.

This is so pretty! I don't know what made Nichole put those graphic hexagons with the round flowers in that set, but it was genius - this card is evidence of that!

Love the happy color combo and the bold design! Tomorrow is my birthday (the big 60) so I'm pretending that you made it just for me! Thanks, Michelle :)
