Dynamic Duos #54

Hello!

I'm here today with my card for Dynamic Duos Challenge #54 where the colours this week are Bashful Blue and Midnight Muse.

My husband asked me to make him a card that his running group could all give to a friend's father for his 90th birthday. The card had to be big enough for them all to sign. The birthday "boy" is one of the nicest men I've met. He is a retired builder and a few years ago he supervised my hubby doing some building work around here. Being about 85 at the time, we didn't want him climbing ladders, but we really needed his building expertise, since we were repairing posts that held our veranda and veranda roof up! He's helped out a few times in various ways. He's a good man.

Anyway, onto the card! It's 8 1/4" x 6".
I used SU! Bashful Blue, Night of Navy (I don't have Midnight Muse), and Whisper White. The dies are wPlus9 Star Stax. The sentiment and little star are from PTI Stylish Sentiments: Birthday.
At this point, I will say that I am very sad that Bashful Blue is retiring. If there are any SU! demos out there who still have a reinker available, please let me know. It has sold out in Australia, and I haven't found anyone who has one in their stock.

Now, I hope you're still with me! After you go and visit the rest of the Dynamic Dynamos, go and make a card and join in the fun! ;-)


I'm also linking up over at Paper Issues where they're inviting us to use dies. :-)

Thanks for coming to visit!
