Anniversary Card for Friends

 Hello friends.  I have an anniversary card to share today.  I have 4 to make for May and this one is going to a sweet young couple.

I received some new goodies from Pinkfresh Studio and this is one of the sets - Blooming Branch.  I ordered the stamps, dies, and stencils and they are so fun to play with.  I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used the stencils to blend the inks over the image: Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo for the blooms and Wild Wasabi for the leaves.  Going over the leaves with the same ink makes it darker using the 2nd leaf stencil.  I used a marker to color the flower centers, even though there is a stencil for them.  I also did not use the 3rd flower layer stencil as I like them the way they were.  I die cut the image and mounted it with foam tape to a panel embossed with an older Tim Holtz Alterations EF, and then  mounted the panel to my white card base.  I really like the finished card and enjoyed using the stencils, which I don't do often.

I will enter this in a few challenges:
