Dynamic Verve...! :)

Hi guys!

How are we all?  Good I hope :)

My mojo is gradually coming back to me, not as quickly as I'd like because I'm impatient, but I'm pleased nonetheless!

I decided to combine the sketch for week 2 over at Viva La Verve with the colour combo for Dynamic Duos this week.  This is a colour combination that I have never used before and I don't think would ever have entered my mind to use - it's wicked though so I'm glad I had a go!

I wasn't sure about this card when I finished it...which is usual lately!  However, I was speaking to my brother on FaceTime yesterday afternoon after I'd made it and he said he really liked it so that's good enough for me!  If there's anything that I can trust my brother to do, it's tell the truth - be it good or bad!  So, if he says he likes it, he means it :)  Thanks Jack!  :)

Anyways, here's the sketch and the colour combo;

...and here is my card;

For a change, I took a slight liberty with the sketch, I hope Laurie won't mind too much ;)  This card is starting to grow on me, I have to admit :)

I'm hoping to be around a bit more now, I've got a lot of challenges to catch up on since my absence - I'm out of the swing a bit!  Thank you to everyone for sticking with me, and the encouraging comments you have all left have been exactly that!  Love you all!  :)

Thanks for stopping by ;)
