50th. Wedding Anniversary Card


Well, hello good stampers, I do hope that you are having a good weekend. If you don't manage to get some creating in this weekend, I hope it's because you are doing something fun!

Today I'm posting a card that I made a couple of days ago for some good friends who are celebrating their 50th. Wedding Anniversary this weekend. I wanted to do something special for them and I hope they will like it. I used Stampendous' Seth and Sarabeth as my image, I think it's a great stamp to use for Anniversaries. I coloured with my Copics, as always, then sponged around them with my Versa Magic 'Aloe Vera' chalk ink, it was the perfect shade for my papers, which are ' Origins' by Basic Grey. I love these papers and I'm heartbroken as I've now used up all of the dark brown one which I used for the main background!! I guess I have to get some more!! I used my circle and Pinking Nesties to frame the image, then pop dotted it onto the different pieces of the papers, bordering one with YoYo Yellow, which I also used for the Pinking piece and also to mat the main papers. I used Wild Wasabi for the other piece of paper and also for the card base. I used the same W. Wasabi for the sentiment, which is from Kraftin' Kimmies Everyday Sentiments . I cut out the 50 from my Cuttlebug Dies, (I love those things) and finished off with some cute Prima flowers and some Maize ribbon, which matches the YoYo yellow perfectly. Now I have to find the perfect verse to go inside.

Well, that's it for me, back to work. I'd much rather be stamping!!

Blessings to you all,
Diana
