Happy Anniversary

 Hello friends.  Today I am sharing an anniversary card I made for my daughter and son-in-law.  Their anniversary is next week.

The colors are teal in person but show up blue in the photo.  Teal was the main color in their wedding so I always try to use that color.  I had to use my new Poppystamps Double Diamond Lattice Plate die and placed it over some paper from my stash.  Next I cut a fancy rectangle with SU Ornate Layers die and stamped the sentiment from SU Many Mates.  The flower is from Altenew Book Engravings. It is a layered stamp but I only used the outline and first layer with Island Indigo ink, stamped off once, as it was too dark full strength.  I used my aqua brush to spread the ink a little over the white areas. The leaves from the same set are colored with alcohol markers. The flower is mounted with foam tape.  As a final touch I added some older small enamel dots.

I used the sketch from The Paper Players for the design of my card.
