Dynamic Duos #66

Hello!

How is your week-end going? As this post goes live, I am at the Sunshine Coast with my family. My hubby was mad enough to sign up with our brother-in-law and friends to run Tough Mudder this year. It looks like a heap of fun, but not for me, yet. It is 20km PLUS obstacles, I'd be lucky to make 10km WITHOUT obstacles at the moment, LOL!

This card is for this week's Dynamic Duos #66 which asks us to use Pool Party and Basic Black. The optional extra is embossing. I love black and pool party. I don't love trying to photograph black... apologies for the slightly grey-ish look in the photo! I used the SU! Stripes embossing folder to create texture.
Ink is Memento Tuxedo Black and SU! Pool Party. Stamps are Stylish Sentiments: Birthday, and Boutique Borders: Thanks. Dies are PTI Mat Stack #1 and Mat Stack #1 Layers.
The rest of the team have done some fabulous work, too!

Thanks for visiting!
