This is my parent's Anniversary Card. They celebrated 40 years recently so although I mailed them a card at the time, I wanted to make something special to bring when I see them this weekend! I decided to make another starburst card using one of my all-time favourite paper packs from Basic Grey - Out of Print. I love how the patterns mixed so nicely!
A big thanks to Donna over at DAT's My Style for the inspiration to layer a sentiment on top of the number. The number alone wasn't quite right - thanks Donna - you are always inspiring me to try something different!
The current challenge at Shopping Our Stash is "Triple Threat" - you must use three from this list of embellishments (or three of a single embellishment):
spray ink/glimmer mist
punched or diecut elements *
I used the starred elements.
Here is the inside. I had a blast researching what was happening the year my parents were married! It is hard to see my printing in the first photo, but you may be able to make it out in the next one. I decided to fill in the empty spots with heart stamps, but admittedly, I got a little carried away and the inside of the card looks a bit busy - oh well!
oops, this photo looks crooked - sorry having lots of trouble with my editing program!
Love this quote from my Tim Holtz set.
Thanks so much for your visit!
