Crafty Secrets Challenges Anniversary Card


This is for Crafty Secrets' 54th weekly challenge over on SCS. Lori challenged us to make a birthday or anniversary card. I used the stamp set Rosy Wishes, and the bottom half of a page from the Birds & Botanicals booklet. I used Always Artichoke and Chestnut Roan inks, and some Old Olive organdy ribbon from SU! I love this ribbon, it melts so beautifully with the heat gun! I will miss its iridescent goodness when it's all gone!

I used two Spellbinders dies, Labels One, and Timeless Heritage. They added the perfect touch to this card.

For paper, I used Bazzil Canvas in Hazel, Daisy D's Attic Heirlooms, and Close to Cocoa. LOVE them all!! I get all my Bazill at Creative Cuts and more.

The pin was originally a white pearl, and I just colored it with a brown Bic marker. I was so pleased with the resultant bronze color, it looks really good with the Copper Stickles. I glued the beads on with Fray Check, it seems to have worked perfectly! Just the Labels One cuts are sprayed with my beloved Antique Brass Glimmer Mist.
