A Great Weekend and a Card of Retro Colours

It has been a lovely weekend.  The weather has been great and I have had lots of interesting activities. 

Yesterday I went to Bendigo, 153 km from Melbourne.  Bendigo is an old gold mining town and it boast one of the best regional Art Galleries in Victoria.  I went to see an exhibition - Grace Kelly, Style Icon. The exhibition traces Grace Kelly's life from her career as a Hollywood actress to her marriage to Prince Rainier III.  It features dresses from her films, to her wedding trousseau to her haute couture gowns.  The only gown that wasn't orginal was her wedding dress and it is too fragile to travel. A very interesting show.

Last night we went to a friends fortieth birthday party.  We caught up with lots of old friends.  The menu was Spanish and was quite delious.  It was a fun evening of good company, food and music.

Today I went with a friend to Queenscliff, 105 km from Melbourne.  Queenscliff is a popular seaside town.  We spent the day shopping and chatting over coffee.  A very pleasant day.

Back to work tomorrow and reality.

But for now for todays card.  This card is for the challenge at The Play Date Cafe.  I was quite keen to make a card using the suggested colours, they are so bold and so retro.
I had seen a video by Jennifer McGuire on creating a chevron border and thought it was ideal for this challenge.  The card was great fun to make

Thanks for popping by.
