Happy Anniversary

It feels good to back posting every day on my blog and her I am today with my DT card for Totally Gorjuss where the challenge is a nice easy one of Happy. I chose to make an anniversary card using one of the lovely Humphrey's Corner stamps from Crafter's Companion, coloured with Spectrum Noirs. The papers are Papermania Aqua capsule collection. I used MS heart and fan border punches as well as my new rose leaf punch with Wild Orchid cherry blossom and rose from Michaels. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, our lovely sponsors this week.

A tip with leaves is to use a fine embossing tool down the centre to give more definition. Don;t think leaves always have to be green either. Match them to the colours of your card.

I used the fab sketch at Papertake and would like to enter it into the anything goes challenges at Simon Says and Crafts and Me. I will be back with another post I hope.
