Daffodil and Baja "Hello"...FUSION #5 and Dynamic Duos #51

A *cas* post this morning to accompany my card destined for two challenges:  FUSION #5 and, a first time, Dynamic Duos, featuring Daffodil Delight and Baja Breeze.  My card came together incredibly quickly, as in 'weird for me' quickly!  Once done, I spent another half hour placing my card next to the challenge 'details,' wondering what I'd missed.  (Okay, okay...with only two colours allowed for Dynamic Duos, I should have figured out there was nothing more to add!!  See what happens when a card is easily put together?  Mush brains!!)  Anyway, after several 'review and compare' stints, I reckoned my card was done...aaaaaand then decided to cut the edge off the front and emboss a border along the inside.  Why (other than 'because')?  Flowers...

Inspiration:

and mine:

I had a bit of a tussle trying to get the embossed edge to show in the photo; hope
you can see it okay! 

Thanks for dropping in, and please know that your comments are welcome and appreciated, deeply!

Have a wonderful day, filled with daffodils and soft breezes...

  5. Wow - this butterfly is a show stopper! Beautifully and perfectly paired with just the right designer papers! Swooning over the hello sentiment. I really like the embossed panel .....just because it is so pretty and adds that little bit of extra interest to the inside of the card :)

  6. I so agree that it is strange when a card comes together quickly...I keep thinking it must need more! But your card definitely does not need more...it is perfectly lovely just as it is!
