Anniversary Card

I am just churning out the cards!!...I think I am done with family members for 2011...My in-laws anniversary is in October...and here is the card I made for them....

{Please excuse the photo quality,,,for some reason I just couldn't get a good, clear photo of this card}

This is a pretty simple card...I love how it turned out!!...The brown cardstock is from Gina K Designs...Its a nice heavy it stands up to just about anything you want to put on it or do to it!!...

I used the Hero Arts Antique Background stamp and light blue Chalk Ink from Color Box and stamped on GKD cardstock...the blue mat is Bazzill Bling...I rounded the corners on the focal panel and added a piece of dotted organza ribbon from my stash...I added  three Prima flowers on the right side of the card with a button and two brads for the centers and I added some Stickles of the flower petals...

I tried stamping the sentiment directly on the card with the same ink as the focal panel...but it just wasn't legible,..It was just too light to see easily...I tried stamping several times using different inks and embossing powders...I wasn't happy with the white embossed sentiment at first...but after walking away for a bit...and getting my Sweetie's opinion, I decided to go with it!!...I stamped the sentiment {Close to My Heart ~ Celebrations} on the same cardstock as the card and heat embossed it with white embossing powder...I inked the edges white also and rounded the corners.

I also finished my DD b-day card today...I will share that tomorrow!!

Have a Great Night!!
