Welcome back Stampin’ friends. It’s been a miserable day in Canberra today, rained all day, so I have been doing a little stamping.

I wanted to share the above card with you, which I made last week. I made it for a mystery challenge for a facebook group I belong to and I also needed a thank-you card for a couple who have given me a lot of help.

The challenge specified the size of the strips of DSP, the card base and the layer and a neutral colour for the greeting and a diecut for the greeting backing. I got the colours from the DSP. (I recently heard someone say “let the DSP do the work”, and that is so true, the colours always work well together!) I meant to put the Brick texture on the DSP only, but I forgot until I had stuck it down on the layer, however I quite like the way it looks. What do you think?
