"Heartfelt Anniversary"


I made this card for my Tony's aunt and uncle. Their Anniversary is next week and I wanted to make them a card. I really love the colors on this one. There is something about turquoise and brown that I love. It is just a great color combo. I found the paper at my local stamp store. The finished card is 5 x 5. I have only made a couple 5 x 5 cards. I really like them but I don't like that they need extra postage. The image is popped up on pop dots for dimension. I also found some tiny pearls to add a little bling. The first flower is stamped at full strength and the other two were stamped off. I wanted to have one dark and the other two light.

This card is beautiful, Rochelle... I love making the square cards - it's something different, ya know. But the extra postage does frustrate me too. My recent favorite color combo is pink, brown, and turquoise... I just love how the brown makes the other two colors pop!
