Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #14

The challenge at Celebrate the Occasion this week was to make an Anniversary project. Well I must confess, usually I'm not that consistent at giving out anniversary cards to my parents, in-laws, and grandparents all of whom deserve a great congratulations for sticking together through the good times and bad all these years :) So this challenge was great for me because we're coming up on some anniversaries soon in my family and now I'll be prepared!

For this card, I used a few different patterned papers and then for the embellishment, I stamped the flower, used liquid glass to give some dimension to the dots, then glued a spiral copper paper clip to the center and used it to anchor my twine to the card. I don't usually go for just black & white, but it seemed to really work here.



Make sure you join us this week at Celebrate the Occasion for this fun challenge and to check out all the fabulous work from the rest of the awesome Design Team!! All you need to do is create a card, layout or project and post it by Sunday, May 22nd, 11:59pm (EST). The winner will be selected and entered into their monthly drawing! The grand prize for May is the "SPRING HOLIDAY CARDS" cricut cartridge!!!! Have a great day!
