Baroque Anniversary!

I should say "Baroque Belated Anniversary!" I told you I was late with stuff this month! One good thing, the month is over at midnight!!! LOL The birthday card I made for my nephew yesterday I will be giving it to him tomorrow. He will be coming over to mow the lawn for us. I don't do mowing. That mower is SO huge and heavy plus it's got that power wheel thing going on and I'm NOT into jogging while I mow!!! And DH has been with is mother so he doesn't have time to do the lawn. SO (if I remember) I will be giving my nephew his card. Now it's his mom (my sister) and dad that I'm made the anniversary card for. I am even later with that one!!! I'd LOVE to be caught up! And I have a new start tomorrow now don't I?? LOL

So onto this card. I used the "Baroque Motif" set by Stampin' Up! Even the flowers on the card were included with this set. The words I did on the computer and then I punched them out with the oval punch. I have a lot of trouble adding only two layers on the wording to cards because you don't have much of a choice in colors. If I would have went with the burgundy it would have blended in with the bottom and you wouldn't see it very well and sticking with the Sahara Sand it blended in with the main part of the card. I did drop the words down to the lower right because that area needed a little something. Plus I think the words would have gotten lost had I added them to the main part of the card. I think just one more size oval punch would be ideal!!

This was a very simple card to make. Not a lot of frill to it at all. I don't feel there is any room for ribbons or bows but I could have added some Dazzling Diamonds in the center of the flowers. But I'm not going to do that! I like it the way it is. Though it is for my sister and she could stand to wear some glitter for a day!!! *insert evil grin here* LOL

What a beautiful card Wanda. Amazing how swirls can make a pretty front.
I have to tell you that I got my daughter into reading your blog regularly now. She makes wonderful cards and I told her she would find this a great place for inspiration. And we especially enjoy chatting about the projects you find for us. Thanks!
