Anniversary Wishes

What's going on folks?! It's almost the weekend and today marks a few great weather days to come in the DC area...WOO HOOO...I {heart} warm weather! I was inspired by SCS Color Challenge and made this card. I like pink and gray together, but the rose red was throwing me off, so I added it with a floral design by coloring my acrylic stamp with my SU! marker (it worked even though it looked like it wouldn't - you have to 'huff' it or breath heavily on it to get the ink moist enough to stamp evenly). That stamp set is one of the many I won during Paper Crafts' Stamp It Week! I received so many goodies!!

Thank you all for stopping by so I can share my creations and I hope you enjoy your day!

Card Instructions
  1. Trim pink cardstock to an A2 card.
  2. Trim gray cardstock into a square.

  5. Tie ribbon around gray cardstock into a bow.
  6. Adhere to card front with foam adhesive.
  7. Stamp sentiment.
