Our Day Anniversary Card

I am spending my morning sitting at my son's school selling yearbooks.  I can not get to my craft room today, so I decided to do a little MDS while I was between sales.

This card was inspired by two challenges.  The sketch came from Deconstructing Jen (#101).  I love the layers main image of this sketch.

I also used the color challenge from Fab Friday (#18).  The colors are fun to work with and I love that there are two neutrals in the group.

I could not find any DSP that I wanted to use that went with the colors of the challenge, so I made my own patterns.  The Soft Suede side strip was decorated with the splatter tool, the Raspberry Ripple was stamped with a border stamp (three times), and the Primrose Petal banner was "stitched."

To keep the inside consistent I used the splatter pattern again.  A beautiful anniversary card in a non-traditional pattern.  I even signed my card. :)  Well, back to the yearbooks!

Supplies: Circle Punch, Flag Punch, Creative Elements Stamp Brush Set, Wedding Words Stamp Brush Set, Simple Stitching, Splatter Tool
