All My Love Anniversary

Here is my entry for this week's Wednesday Sketch over at The Outlawz.


I made this card for my Husband for our 16th Wedding Anniversary next month. I know I'm a bit early, but I was dying to use this cut file, and the sketch challenge just made it so easy. The card base is a pre-embossed white satin trim card stock. I layered a piece of designer paper from The Paper Studio in the middle. The ribbon is from Me and My Big Ideas and that was placed diagonal according to the sketch. The black portion of the heart flourish is a cut file from Silhouette of America. I traced the inside and hand-cut a white hard to go behind it. I distressed the heart with gray ink and stamped the sentiment from Gina K. Designs' Arranged With Love set. The flourish at the top is bits and pieces from 4 different packs of bling that I arranged by hand. Finally, I added the metal and black flower bling in the lower left corner. The center was originally clear, but I colored it black with my Copic marker.
