Happy Anniversary Card - Nature Inspired

Hi, guys!  I thought I would share a card I made for a friend's husband to celebrate their second wedding anniversary.


Supplies:
Stamps: Stampers Anonymous
Ink: Archival Black,  Distress Ink, Dylusions Spray Inks
Paper: Watercolor Paper, Gina K Designs 
Misc.: Ribbon, Gems, Oval Punch, Computer Generated Name, Distress Tool, Heart Button

I wanted to make this different than I normally do for anniversaries.  I normally would use red, white, pink or something like that for anniversaries.  I wanted to make this look natural in feel and use a different color palette.  I thought the use of the spray inks would be fun.  I love their vibrant colors and how easy they are to use. My fingers got incredibly inky when I made this card!   I can't believe it has been two years already since my friend married Seth.  I am so happy that they found each other.

Have a great day!  I hope you find some time in your day to do something you love!

This is beautiful Winnie. Love the very earthy and organic feel to your project. Naturally, I adore your butterflies which look amazing the way you have stamped them on your project.

What a fun blog! I love paper crafting too but I'm not super great at stamping. You've got some great card ideas and I'm especially intrigued by the metal finish. This anniversary card is lovely. I actually thought it was pen and ink at first! Congrats on your three months blogging. I'm new too and just getting brave enough to let people even see my blog! I see that Claudine Hellmuth inspires you! I am such a fan of hers. I can't wait to look into some of those other people on your list.

I love the cute green heart and the ribbon, they soften and compliment the natural feel of the card. Pretty!
