The Power of Two

So glad I've finished my other job for the week, its been horrible. Staff numbers are being reduced in December, and we are all feeling emotional. My job is safe - for now, thank goodness!

Lying awake in the early hours of the morning, I sometimes get inspiration and I just HAD to have another play with Zoo Babies (130453), Retro Sketches, Wild Things for The Paper Players and SUO Challenges too, for "a favourite sentiment".

I picked the Zebra and Toucan this time, stamped the World Map (130342) image before reinking my old Basic Black stamp pad, and the wildlife were stamped after the reinking. I used a Stampin Write in Basic Black so that I could selectively ink the sentiment (because I couldn't fit the whole thing in a banner and it seemed to take too much room in full too.

I've chosen another bright shade, Tangerine Tango and Epic Day DSP (130814) is the layer behind the World Map. The frame is Textured Impressions Designer Frames (123130), this one is the rectangle with the centre torn out; there is an oval shape in that set too.

I still have some of my free Sale-a-bration buttons left, so I popped a Pool Party one on, tied with matching Bakers Twine.

I think this card would make a quirky engagement/wedding/anniversary card, for the right couple!!
Does anyone agree?

Happy crafting everyone
