Today is my 30th Wedding Anniversary, so I made this simple card for hubby.  It uses a sketch from Splitcoaststamper's Creative Crew Color Focus Challenge.  This is a new color combination for me, but I thought it worked well.  I also added elements from an old Mojo Monday sketch that coordinates with it as well.  Well Worn DSP is one of my go-to papers for masculine cards.  And for this card, I chose to use the brand new Send Me Soaring Stamp Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  It is such a cute stamp set and I thought the sentiment was perfect for how I feel about my husband, Michael!  Check out the picture near the end of the post for other sentiments included with the set.

Since I was trying to keep it closer to the CAS side, I did not watercolor the sky as I usually do.  It kind of bothers me a bit now, but I'm trying to do more projects that are easy to duplicate.  The kites are stamped and cut out and then popped out on Stampin' Dimensionals although you can't really see that in the picture.  Hope you enjoy my little card!

  1. Great card! Happy Anniversary!! On my computer the brads look like a circle of black cs, with a smaller circle of gray, but I see it was the neutral brads. But it was a great reminder that I do need to show faux brads next time my stampers get together.


Thank you for blessing me with your comments! I truly appreciate each and every one. Have a fabulous day!
