I'M SMILING AGAIN!
THIS CARD IS NAMED A
SPLITCOASTSTAMPERS FAVORITE OF THE
WEEK ENDING - AUGUST 6, 2017!!
We are celebrating our youngest's eleventh anniversary this year! WOW! is it difficult to realize it has been that many years since this lovely couple married. But, these two also celebrated the birth of their first child just a few months ago, so now it is easier to recognize that they've been married a few more years than five or so! I wanted to make them a special card celebrating their first anniversary with Miss Callie Page in attendance as well. Take a peek below at the finished card front and inside with my composed verse via the computer:
THE BACK STORY!
I recently purchased this whimsical die-cut from Spellbinder, named Dandylion, which depicts the dandelion's seed head after flowering. I thought I'd use it as an anniversary card with the two little seedlings sailing off in the breeze as a couple to begin their own family. I dare say my imagination is a bit whimsical today!
My background is made with Stampin' Up re-inkers in Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delights, and a touch of Lemon-Lime Twist, and the Danylion die-cut is made using black glitter paper. I made the sentiment using my computer and printing directly onto my finished watercolor background. I decided to add a perky little sheer ribbon and bow, and pop the watercolor front and its black mat up off the Tempting Turquoise cardbase. I'm pretty happy with my watercolored background since I have not used this technique much, and I'm not totally comfortable with it yet.
Splitcoaststamper's is also hosting their annual Dare to Get Dirty Challenges for their members who are SCS Fan Clubbers. Since we are not supposed to mentioned what the basis of the challenge is, I will just say this one is for the very first challenge initiated by *Understanding Blue (*the hostess' SCS nickname). There is a color challenge going on as well, which requires the use of the three colors I chose for my card, so it will be entered that challenge as well.
