Just Believe Anniversary Card

I almost forgot that I needed an anniversary card this month.  I can't forget my sister's anniversary!!  

I wasn't sure where I was going with this image.  I just loved the Marina Mist with Wild Wasabi and after I got the image colored in with markers (Direct to Rubber technique), the rest was super easy!

I added a couple of pieces of card stock behind the image.  A piece of Marina Mist and a piece of Wild Wasabi.  These were cut 1/4" smaller than the image piece.  I set them in place behind the image piece and I liked what I saw.  

Then I took the Whisper White card stock and used the Dotted Swiss embossing folder and when it was done I sponged the edges with Marina Mist.  I also used Marina mist on the edges of the stamped image and on the word circle.

The words were done on the computer and punched out.  They were layered on top of a piece of Wild Wasabi and then laid on top of a scalloped piece of Marina Mist. It was set in place using Dimensionals.  

The ribbon was tied onto the Whisper White piece before it was set in place.

I had fun making this card.  I just loved it when things flow along so smoothly.  I'm sure she will like this card!  Now to get it out in the mail on time!  It would be nice if I were on time with more cards!!! I've been so bad about setting the cards on the counter and not getting them addressed and sent off on time. The sad part of this is that the cards were made, it's not like I had to rush to make them!!  Something I need to work on!

Tomorrow I will be working on the Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  Hubby and I took a day off and headed up to Duluth.  We needed a little break and thought we could sneak away for a day and relax.  We have not been up there during tourist season in many years.  We usually go up in the fall with the "leafers."  Last fall we went up there WAY after leafer season too!  We went in November and it was VERY cold up there then and windy too!  But I don't care, I just like to get away.  Even if it's for one night.  SO because we left on Tuesday and came back on Wednesday I didn't have time to play with the sketch.  So I will be printing it out tonight and playing with it later.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
