Anniversary card


It happens to all of us - and I've been stuck for inspiration.  In order to regain my mojo, I had to turn my attention to my private stamp collection (stamp sets not currently in the SU Europe Idea Book and Catalogue and non SU products).   So this card is a combo of SU and non SU products.  If you follow my blog, there will be times when I'll stray off my well trod SU track - so bear with me.  ..."Variety is the spice of life"..... so I'm told.

The "flowers" for this was made with 6 punched DSP (Designer Series Paper) circles which were folded in half and glued together.   The image was stamped in Certainly Celery on a scrap of Very Vanilla, distressed edges all round and inked in Rose Red to match card blank and DSP.  I added a piece of Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon  on the left before matting on to Certainly Celery which had a scalloped edge on one side.   These were then finally layered on to the Rose Red card blank and to finish, I added a butterfly and used some crystals for the body for some extra sparkle.
