Anniversary with bling

Thank you for calling in - I am away from home again, so I am going to share a card I made in September.

I love the quote that I used here, and when I came across it again recently I decided to use it for this card.  I typed it up on the computer, and used two fonts to give it some drama, and then sized it to fit on a Nestabilities Labels 14 (size 4) cut out.  After cutting the quote out, I sponged it while still in the die, using Memento inks, Danube and sky blues, cantaloupe and dandelion yellows. I stamped the sentiment in tuxedo black and cut it using the smallest die in the set, also sponging it before the die was removed.

The card base was white, and the blue is a piece of laser cut dp that I had on hand {a RAK from my neighbour :-)} and has a lovely sheen to it.

After layering the cutouts, I added the flowers with a pearl in the centers, and the flourishes in the bling and the card was complete.

I just wish that all my cards came together as quickly and easily as this one!!

Thanks for calling by and I treasure your comments.

I trust you have a blessed day.
