Simple Anniversary Wish

This is a very clean and simple anniversary card using the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #304 and the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge #75 as inspiration.

Card Base: Sahara Sand card stock
Embossed Layer:  Stamped image from the Work of Art stamp set using Soft Sky, Sahara Sand and Basic Gray inks.  Ran through Big Shot with Square Lattice embossing folder.  Attached to card front.
Sentiment:  From the Express Yourself stamp set, sentiment stamped on Whisper White with Basic Gray ink.  Cut end into banner.  Matted with Basic Gray card 
stock and attached to card with Glue Dots.
Flower:  Made using the Simply Pressed Clay and the Blossoms Mold.  Mixed Dazzling Diamonds with the clay before making the flower.  After drying, I "pushed" it into the Soft Sky ink pad to color it.  Heat embossed it with VersaMark and Clear Embossing Powder.  Next time I will color the clay before molding.  I attached this finishing touch using Crystal Effects.  I really like these colors together.  Have a great day.
