Hardwood Than You

We spent a really pleasant weekend in Cheltenham visiting my "almost" step-daughter and her partner. We went so they could take her Dad out for his birthday which was last week. We had a trip out into the Cotswolds for afternoon tea at a teashop in Broadway, then on Saturday had a trip to the National Arboretum at Westonbirt. It was a pity the weather wasn't better as it was a bit grey and damp!

When we got back I rustled up a quick card as a thank you. I used a retired Thank You stamp, the background hardwood stamp which is very popular at the moment and the Petite Petals stamp set and punch. The leaves were punched with the owl builder punch. I used Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo ink. it looks as though there is rather a lot of white at the top but the panel looked perfectly central in real life! As Dynamic Duos have picked melon mambo and turquoise 


 for their challenge this week I am going to enter this over there even though I have used a different turquoise.
