UWYH #14: Happy Anniversary

Hello, friends!  I'm back today with a card for the Use What You Have Challenge #14 at the Sweet Stamp Shop...and this time I posted it on time!!  (Yay me!)  This time there are sketches and color palettes and ideas if you need some structure, or you can do what I did and just go for it!

I still have way too much patterned paper in my stash...not to mention embellishments (gems, sequins) and Spellbinder die cut shapes.  Here is a bit of what I used for my card:

I really love the silhouette image in this adorable set ("Kiss Me") and I thought it would make a cute anniversary card.  What do you think?

Materials Used:
Stamps: Sweet Stamp Shop "Kiss Me," Hero Arts "All Occasion Messages," "Delicate Flowers"
Inks: Hero Arts Bubblegum midtone ink, black dye ink, Shabby Shutters distress ink
Other: ribbon, patterned papers, pink gem, corner rounder, Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" border punch

By the way, in case you haven't heard, today is a special day for Sweet Stamp Shop owner and designer Nicole Rixon.  Happy Birthday, Nicole!  As a way of celebrating her special day, she is offering a nice coupon for 29% off all regular priced stamps today only (Friday, August 30th).  Check it out HERE!  The coupon code is HBN29. 

Thanks for stopping by!
