When The Striplet Met The Tapestry. . . . . . . . .

Good morning Duckadees. Hope this finds you well. Thankfully, my services were not required on Sunday so I didn't have to work, hurrah !!!

Thank you for your super comments on my last card although, Christine, I think Sue Wilson may take issue with you calling me "the striplet queen" hahaha (and yes, it did sound a bit rude but I know what you meant).

I hope that you popped along to the Hobbycutz Challenge Blog as there is a DT call as well as the actual challenge.

Now, for today's offering, when The Striplet Met The Tapestry. . . . . . . .A bit like when Harry met Sally but without the table slapping (although, when a card turns out well, I have been known to yell, "Yes, Yes, Yes !!!". . . . .)
Anyhoo, I introduced my two favourite dies to each other and they seem to get along rather well, I think.
Before I go any further, I should say,  when you look at the colours on the photos, you may be forgiven for thinking that John (Johnnextdoor) had done the photography (only joshing John !!!) as the second two shots are a more accurate colour representation than the top one.
Yellow, I find is very tricksy to photograph so if you can imagine the top one the same colour as the bottom two, I'd be very grateful.

This centre section is also cut from the Tapestry and added in the opposite orientation to the full die cut beneath it, if that makes sense.

John's pearls

Very simple but fairly effective. . . . . . . a bit like me hahaha!!!!!!

Well, that's me for now. Hope you all have a smashing day.
