CR84FN42 - Happy Anniversary

Time for another beautiful  CR84FN challenge.  The colors are very elegant and sophisticated this week. :) 

I had the Verses Stamp May Today Anniversary - SP9011F from their new release that is in Spanish. One of my favorite sentiments from them:

"May
TODAY
be filled with happy
MEMORIES
of the past...and bright
HOPES
For the future"
Happy Anniversary 

The sentiment was stamped using black archival ink on white cardstock. I then stamped the Hero Arts Lace Doily over the top of the sentiment using Versamark.  I heat embossed the lace background using  clear embossing powder.  I sponged Memento pink dye ink over the surface to bring out the doily resist.   The background papers are from My Minds Eye. Those pink crystal sprigs are from the floral department at Hobby Lobby. I loved them when I saw them. I was busy looking for Easter accents for another project I was working on and they fit with the card. :)

  26. I have to say I love la idioma de español. I never get to practice or use it, so when I saw your verse, I immediately started to see if I could translate, LOLOLOL, never noticing you had it in English below and I was almost perfect. A really lovely card.
