Happy Anniversary, Lucy and David!

This card uses the last stamp (except for the words) from the Stampin' Up! set called "Baroque Motifs." The stamps from the set are the swirls in the background and the medallion.

I stamped the background with Versamark and used a new jar of embossing powder from Michael's called Glitz. It's the same as my old one called Iridescent Sparkle. I did the same with the medallion stamp, then I trimmed around the edges and mounted on foam tape. Since it sort of resembled a flower, I used a swirly die from Spellbinders to cut "leaves" from green textured cardstock. I matted with black and added sheer black ribbon. Actually, I added the ribbon and THEN I matted! :) I cut the tag with an old Sizzlits die from Sizzix. I stamped the sentiment using a stamp from Papertrey Ink. I inked up the whole tag with my Versamark and used the same Glitz embossing powder. Then I inked it again with Versamark a couple times and added some thick embossing powder. I've tried to capture the multi-colored effect of the embossing powder.

This card is for one of my oldest (well, not really the oldest! We've just been friends almost forever!) friends and her husband on their anniversary. Their anniversary was yesterday, but I wanted to give her time to open the card before seeing it here. Happy Anniversary, Lucy!

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

I love what you've been doing with Versamark and embossing powders Lynette. This sparkly card is just another example.

Oooh, the sparkle sure does make this pretty! I have similar embossing powder called Iridescent Peacock. It does give a nice effect. Really love the vining stamp in this set. I was keeping the set just for that, but finally let it go. I need some space in my room. There's always something new coming in, so something else has to go. I love that you added the green flourishes and sparkled up the tag, too. Pretty colors!
