The theme for the DT call challenge is to create a card or a project based on the theme "Celebration." Wow. Very broad. At first I thought about making a card for my niece who will be 3 this month. I made it, loved it, but thought it wasn't good enough. I'll post it later...
So, I was in a bad way. I was so worried that I wouldn't figure out what to make! And then, like a ray of lightning from heaven, it hit me. MY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY is in NOVEMBER. And I love my husband so. He is my everything! He is my reason for celebrating every day! And so, I decided to create a card for my wedding anniversary for my husband.
Now, on to the card. I used a stamp set from Technique Tuesday called "In a Word-Love". I purchased this stamp set a l-o-n-g time ago...I cannot even remember when. I think it's probably retired by now.
Anywho...here's the card~Celebration of Love~
What do you think? I took a lot of time to make sure that it turned out exactly how I imagined it. I used gold ink and gold embossing powder for the sentiment.
Here's a closer look~
I added the flowers with button centers to compliment all the colors of the framing panels of cardstock. I also wanted to offset the gold sentiment on the other side of the card with something else gold. I chose gold elastic cording.
Take a closer look~
I love glitter (Really?! You hadn't noticed?! ;D) and so I had to have it somewhere on the card. I embossed the River Rock panel with a dry embossing folder and then turned it over and filled in the recessed portions with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
See it better here~
Well, I couldn't just stop there. There's an inside to every card! So, I decorated the inside with more gold embossing.
Here's the inside panel~
And a close up of the inside sentiment~
Yes, it says "You are my angel." My husband truly is an angel sent from heaven to save me in so many ways. I feel so incredibly blessed to be married to him--he is my heart and soul. I love him so! Happy anniversary, darling! I can't wait to see what eternity brings!
So, what are your reactions? What are your thoughts? I am happy with it. I wish I could be ecstatic with it, but I am seriously too nervous. I hope it's acceptable!
