Double Trouble

My friend Sam and her husband Phil have birthdays a day apart and so I made this pair for them.

I veered a little away from Sam's favourite blue by trying out turquoise and black. The idea for this card was inspired by a lovely lady called Onita from Split Coast Stampers and thanks to her I'm showing it here.



This for Phil was made using an image I stamped while we were all staying with Lorry on the Isle of Skye. The main image is by Paper Bag Studios and the background stamp is by Stamp Camp.

Can't even begin to tell you how beautiful these are "in the flesh". Teal and Swedish Blue are my two very favourite shades of blue so it's just perfect ;o)

And of course Phil was SO chuffed you'd thought of him again (and of course with such an elegant card!)
