Tomorrow, July 12th, will be our 10th wedding anniversary. I wanted to make a card for my DH but was having trouble coming up with some ideas re colour and layout. I'm just busy getting ready for my trip to Toronto and was simply unable to focus on stamping. So, what to do....of course, visit SCS and take a challenge. This card represents two challenges in one card. The layout is from a sketch at Poetic Artistry and is my entry for an extra number in Blogger Bingo. Now I have the layout I want to use, but couldn't even come up with a colour scheme. Off to SCS for Colour Challenge 122 which you can see here. Well, waddya know, perfect colours for a masculine, yet romantic card. Just the ticket. And SC122 was born. I knew I wanted to use the Hearts Cuttlebug embossing folder, Papertrey Ink's, Green Thumb had just the stamp and the new Faux Ribbon the perfect sentiment. Put all these elements together, add a touch of Ranger Liquid Pearls and I was ready to give my love his card. I had to give it today because I'm away tomorrow.
