Soft Pastels

I had to whip up an anniversary card to be sent off today.  I pulled out the Mojo Monday Sketch # 263 and used the CR84FN65 colors to help jump start my card.


This card is for my SIL & her hubby.  They have been married just about as long as me and my hubby.  Their oldest daughter is at West Point.  I remember when she was born!  Time goes by so quickly.

I looked through my pattern paper for coordinating colors and found a beautiful pad of paper from My Mind's Eye - Follow Your Heart - Be Happy which had the perfect colors to match the CR84FN challenge.

I cut the paper to fit the layout added a touch of distressing and dye ink.

I added the beautiful sentiment from Verses Rubber Stamps - Bright Hopes Anniversary backed by the poem How Do I Love Thee. 

I also added a sneak peek of the brand new butterfly from Stampendous being released this week! (all next week the Stampendous DT will be sharing the new catalogue!)

The last detail was to take a gem flourish and to mute it with liquid pearls.  I didn't have a pearl flourish that coordinated with the colors I had.  I took the gem flourish and coated it with liquid pearls in a soft pink and it worked perfectly with the color scheme.

Hope your Saturday is spectacular!
