I needed an anniversary card, so for my inspiration I used the following challenges:
1. Sketch challenge at Simon Says Stamps challenge blog;
2. Free 4 All challenge - F4A100 - at Splitcoaststampers - to use at least 2 hearts; and
3. DYSU#55 - use patterned paper - at http://doyoustackup.blogspot.com/.
First, I stamped my doily from Stampin' Up's Delicate Doilies stamp set onto my patterned and die-cut card base with white pigment ink, and heat embossed it with detail white embossing powder. Then I stamped my heart stamp on off-white cardstock and cut it out. Popped it up on top of the stamped doily with pop-dots. Added the little love bird charm, some red rhinestone flowers, heart ribbon and my Happy Anniversary sentiment. tfl
