Welcome to another Double D Challenge! Have a look at our mood board:
When Darlene said "Pearls, Gems, or Rhinestones" I felt it was a good time to use up something that's been lingering in my stash for a few years. I'm not a very blingy girl these days, but I still like looking at it. You can't help but notice the large pearl flourish on my sample card, can you?
This card is a bit much for me, frankly, but it's just right for my friend who's always asking for anniversary cards. I used the Power Poppy Summer Berries stamp set. It has a "Happy anniversary" sentiment with it which I used inside, and I figured this sentiment on the front expresses one of those things that makes a marriage work.
The berries are watercolored with a mix of Stampin' Up! and Tombow markers. The stitched hearts are dies, the smaller hearts are a punch. I added gloss to all the hearts except the largest one. Remind me not to fussy cut these berries next time. Sheesh, my index finger doth protest!
This is one of my pre-made card fronts using OLD Prima Fairy Flora designer paper. It's a favorite piece in the background, and a least favorite piece for the oval frame. Love the berries, but I'd like to see them on their own CAS card. Sigh... it is what it is.
Check out beautiful team samples at Double D and then share yours in the gallery. Love to see you there! Have a wonderful day!
