DYSU Challenge #38 - Duo

2nd close up on cameos

Just popping in with a new card made for the Do You Stack Up? Challenge over at their blog...This weeks theme is Duo! The team want to see design elements in twos or pairs....and here's my take...

Cameo Everything to Me

I thought the pair/duo concept would lend itself well to a partnership too - so I made an Anniversary/wedding type card...

The Cameos are stamped with Versamark Ink and then stamped in Silver Pearl embossing powder - I love the texture and irregular look this gives. I used my current favourite Melissa Frances 5th Avenue papers, Waltzingmouse stamps, buttons, lace, prima rose, scalloped edge punch, Spellbinders Fancy Tags - *happy sigh* - really enjoyed indulging my girlie side with this one!!

I also have a couple of recycled items on this card - six buttons to be precise which were passsed onto me from my mum who cut them off a shirt & thought of me! Love that! So it means I can also enter this card into the CES Challenge - to Recycle.

Have a wonderful rest of the week everyone!!
