Happy Anniversary

I am approaching my 12 year wedding anniversary. Boy, that is a long time! Last November I celebrated my 10 year anniversary at my place of employment. Sounds like I'm getting old, doesn't it? Let's not go there.

I made this anniversary card for my husband. The background stamp is Stampin' Up! Tres Chic and the flowers are from Watercolor Trio.

I did some sponging on this card to give it a soft, delicate effect. All you do is take a sponge and dab it on your ink pad to collect some ink, then sponge the ink on your cardstock. To achieve darker color in some areas, just sponge over the same area several times.

Here is a peek at the inside of the card. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! All Holidays set.

Have a great day and happy stamping!


Recipe (all supplies from Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Tres Chic, Watercolor Trio, All Holidays, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise
Card Stock: Whisper White
Accessories: Pretties Kit
Tools: Scallop Edge Punch
