Best Blossoms Anniversary

An anniversary card for friends.

The frame was cut with my Cameo Silhouette - one of the few things I've cut with it. Hopefully I'll spend more time with it some time soon! I cut an oval to put under it and stamped the flowers on it. (They are from a Stampin' Up! set called Best Blossoms.) Then I stamped the sentiment, from My Sentiments Exactly. After stamping, I sponged the entire panel with SU! Soft Sky ink. I added a row of black gems under the sentiment for a little more balance. I matted with a layer of Soft Sky cardstock and a layer of black. It feels good to be doing some stamping again. I'm entering this into the Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge, which is to use sponging. I suppose my sponging should be a bit more prominent, but I made the card first and then saw the challenge:)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.

A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance. I must say you've done a fantastic job
with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on
Opera. Excellent Blog!

Hello, Lynette!!!! Love your card and you did a great job with your Silhouette! I haven't broken mine out of the box yet and I've had it for months. So happy to see you back over at The House That Stamps Built.
