I am going submit this card to the challenge at:
This is another fantastic sketch. I had to stretch my thinking cap a bit to get this to work out for me today, but it was fun. I also want to congratulate the amazing top picks from sketch #261.. WOW! Awesome job everyone. The designers really did an amazing job with today's sketch. I tried my best and here is my take on it.
I made this card today for my Husband. We are celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary. We wanted a summer wedding Aug 4th to be exact, but my mom does not like summer weddings so we had to change the date. Just so ya all know.. it's always been a regret, but what's a gal to do, we celebrate on August 4th too, that is the day we actually met. So it's like we celebrate 2 anniversaries. Quick story we met at a truck show at the race tracks. Two young kids from two different towns, meeting in the popcorn line. .. the rest is history you might say.
Today's card I embossed the background with hearts and then did so again on a scrap paper, so I could cut out a few and paste them on the front of this card to give it a bit more dimension. I then stamped the little house and sentiment from Stampin ups Cozy Cottage. I die cut out the circles and layered the card in navy blue. I love how the cute outdoor chairs are perfect for lovebirds on their anniversary 💑. I just didn't know what to do with the top of the circle.. because I wanted to stay close to the sketch as possible, I thought about adding flowers, but it looked awkward, then I thought about hearts to kind of go with the backround, but nope didn't like it.. so being for my husband I found my stampin up's Family Reunion set and chose "husband" for a bit of a banner. That looked the best. YAY❕ It was a lot of coloring and I think I got quite high from the smell.. haha seriously a headache though.
Any ways, I also wanted to share two pictures of the flowers my sweetheart gave me. 💘
Thank you all for stopping by for a visit.
Sorry I was a bit long winded today. The next couple posts should be shorter. I made 2 other cards today (so far). SO I hope you can come back and check those out too.
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping
