A New Anniversary Card

 Hello friends.  I am sharing an anniversary card made for a young couple at church that is celebrating their first anniversary this month.  I used the colors from Color Hues Challenge - Orange and Green, plus the neutrals of kraft and black.

ETA: Yes, my card was a runner up at the Color Hues Challenge.

The flower is from Altenew/Pinkfresh Studio Celebrate Us stamp & die set. It is a layered stamp set and I used Pumpkin Pie ink, stamped off once for the lighter shade and full strength for the darker shade.  I colored the leaves with alcohol markers.  After die cutting the image, I trimmed a little of the white border off, added Wink of Stella to the flower, and mounted it with foam tape.  The green dotted paper is from my stash and I used black mats on it and the embossed kraft panel.(Tasteful Textile EF).

This photo shows the pretty shine from the Wink of Stella pen.

The sentiment is from an older JustRite Large Fancy Sentiments (not sure if it is still available).  I fussy cut it and added it with foam tape also.

I will also link to Watercooler Wednesday - All About Occasions.


Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
