Happy Anniversary!

Today is my parent's wedding anniversary and I wanted to make them a card.  I wanted to make it elegant and to incorporate the colors from the Off the Wall Craftiness color challenge this week which were black, orange & white!  I know, maybe not your traditional anniversary colors but that is why it is a challenge right!?  LOL!!

So, here is my card:


I think it turned out OK!  I stamped the medallions in VersaMark and then embossed them.   The contrast of the white and black is so striking in real life. 

Here are the challenge colors:


I don't know if you can see in the picture or not, but I used the PTI Linen Impression Plate to give the white some texture. This makes such a huge difference! I used a PTI Fillable Frame die and stamp and cut the frame in half, stamped the sentiment on it and then tucked it under the bow.


Thanks again for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed this non-traditional anniversary card!  I hope my parents enjoy it too!  Have a nice day!
