Happy Anniversary

I made an anniversary card for a couple at church (1 more to go), using Viva la Verve November Week 1 sketch.  I love Julee's sketch and will be using it again.

The white, pink, and gray DSP is from Pink Paislee Bella Rouge 6x6 pad.  Black mats are Recollections and the card base is Coredinations Heavy White Card.  The sentiment from Verve's Love Story is stamped in SU Basic Gray ink.  I paper-pierced the 4 corners and added 3 small black pearls.  The flower from Verve's Grateful Elegance and Plain Jane 016 (largest flower)(sorry, both are discontinued) are stamped in Basic Gray ink on Blush Blossom CS.  I sponged Blush Blossom ink on the tips of the petals.  The leaves are from SU Birthday Blossoms, stamped in Basic Gray ink.  I added foam dimensionals between the flower layers and also to adhere it to the card.  The banners are cut with MFT Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Flags Layers dies.  Lastly, I added a Basic Gray ribbon and bow.

I am also entering this in Just Us Girls challenge - Word Week - stripes.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
