Happy Anniversary–CTD #181

Pin It


Hi, everyone! It’s time for the Color Throwdown Challenge! Are you ready for a TOTALLY sweet color combo from Lynn? Look at that inspiration piece, would you? I actually grow some roses that look like that. Hopefully this year will be a good one :)

So, I went with an equally sweet anniversary card for my project today. I stamped the sentiment from MFT’s Finishing Flourishes with Ruby Red ink and the flourishes with Blushing Bride, and swiped some Blushing Bride ink on the edges of my Cleary Sentimental Label Die-namics die cut. I’m using MFT Sketch #57 for my layout. I added some bling, popped the sentiment panel up on some foam dots, and added a Die-namics Rolled Rose and some Die-namics Upsy Daisy leaves. 

Here’s a close up of the sentiment…


…and one of the rose.


Here’s the inside with a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Romance and more flourishes.


Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:
