Playing Along with Freshly Made Sketches #250

Hello and welcome back! Today's card is for this week's challenge at Freshly Made Sketches
And here is my card:

I needed an anniversary card and a wedding card this week, so I planned on using the same card for both. This is what I originally created:

Which is close to the sketch, but not exactly. :)

Both cards use the Flourish Thinlits, the retired Gold Foil Vellum paper, and a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella on a Very Vanilla card base. The sentiments have been stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The Wink of Stella and embossing didn't show up very well in the photos, but it's there!

I'll be putting these cards in the mail today, and I hope they are appreciated.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!


Supplies used:

Very Vanilla card stock
Gold Foil Vellum paper
Gold Foil paper
Versamark ink
Flourish Thinlits
Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder
Pearls Basic Jewels
Clear Wink of Stella
Mini Glue Dots
