SIP#15 & FMS#205 - Happy Anniversary!

Hello and welcome back! I think I've set a record this week - posting four days in a row! I guess I found this week's challenges especially appealing, and I was also able to combine several of them, so that helped a lot. Today's card is for the Stamp Ink Paper color challenge and the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I have friends who have an anniversary coming up so this card is for them.

Here is today's card:

This card uses a combination of current and "vintage" products. The En Francais background stamp is one that I will never get rid of - it is one of my favorites! It's stamped in Pool Party to complement the embossed banner.  The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink, and I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the words lined up just right. After adding the little Daffodil Delight banner, I felt like it needed just a little more of that yellow accent, so I dug that "vintage" flower button out of my stash. The sliver of doily was sitting on my work table - a leftover from yesterday's card - so I added that too, just below the "vintage" satin ribbon.

I hope my friends enjoy this card and I hope you like it too!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

  1. This is so lovely and elegant. The textured background, the lacy doily and the black ribbon really make this a stunner! And I'll never get rid of En Francais either! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. Hi Cindi, what a very pretty combo. I love the use of the sketch with our challenge colours this week with those textures. Great way to combine them. Thanks for joining us this week at Stamp Ink Paper. Carolyn xx
