365 Cards - # 88 Quite A Pair

The challenge today over at 365 Cards is Quite A Pair and we had to design an Anniversary card or an Engagement Congrats, anything else goes but NO Wedding cards!  At first I thought great I am just about to complete a wedding card for my bestie that she had ordered, and then I read on but NO Wedding cards. . .well that took the wind out of my sails didn't it?  After that I just sat for a while staring at the window like I usually do, as if that will show an image of what I need lol.  I decided on the colour scheme and the rest just fell into place.  The main image was stamped in Baja Breeze with the flower sprig from the set stamped over a section with Blue Bayou as well as the Congratulations in Blue Bayou.  The card is a 5 x 5 for a change.   I meant to emboss the 5 petal flower but I forgot.   All done and dusted within 3/4 of an hour. . not too bad.

I so hope Mr Linky is not playing games tonight and I can load my card up with no worries.  That's me for another night but. . .
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Blue Bayou (deceased) cardstock. SU Urban Garden designer paper.  SU Fresh Cuts stamp set.  Penny Black sentiment from my ancient stash.  Blue Bayou double stitched ribbon. SU 5 Petal punch and Eyelet Border punch.  SU Flower brad.  Baja Breeze and Blue Bayou stamp pads and sponge dauber.

Love your stamping and how it is layered, I'm afraid I wouldn't have the first idea how to make it look so nice.
