Big & Bold Anniversary Wishes

Happy weekend to everyone.  This card is the first of a three card series.  My daughter-in-love's sister and brother-in-law are celebrating their anniversary next week.  But they are also celebrating their birthdays, all on the same day.  I chose the TIME OUT Challenge #104 - BOLD for my inspiration.  I think the large image and sentiment as well as the bright colors does make a bold statement.  I'll share the other two cards next week some time.

Card Base:  Lemon Lime Twist CS cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"; score at 4-1/4".  I added a layer of Whisper White CS that had the corners rounded using the Envelope Punch Board.

Image Layer:  The beautiful flower from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set was stamped on Whisper White CS with Fresh Fig ink.  The Layering Squares Framelits were used to cut it out.  I cut a piece of Eastern Palace DSP and rounded the corners to use as a mat.  Before matting the image, I added a Delicate White Doily that was colored with a Sponge Brayer and Crushed Curry Ink between the image and the mat.  A piece of Crushed Curry 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon was added to the white layer.

Sentiment:  One of the banners from the Banners for You stamp set was stamped on Lemon Lime Twist CS using Fresh Fig ink.  Two of the sentiments from the same stamp set were then stamped on the banner with Fresh Fig ink.  The banner was cut out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  It was added to the card with Dimensionals.

The Finishing Touches:  To the center of the big flower I added a large Clear Faceted GemMetallic Enamel Shapes were added to the sentiment banner.

I appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog.  Please let me know what you think of the card.  Have a blessed and safe weekend.
