Happy Anniversary and Cuttlebug Challenge #12


This was our 35th Anniversary, and this is the card I made for my sweetheart :-) The gemstone for 35 is Emerald, so I used plenty of glittering jewels on the card. They were originally "diamonds" but with a green Sharpie, they easily became "emeralds"!!
The Cuttlebug Challenge this week was to Sand the Embossed Image, so I used the Bird and Floral design, and lightly sanded the top with an emery board, so that the white core of the paper shows through. The tree image is from Imaginesce, and the Happy Anniversary is cut at 2" with the Calligraphy Cartridge. The ribbon and jewels are from M's and the paper from Sam's. The inking was done with the MS stacked colors that I got for Christmas...thanks Mom! A litte accent work with a copper gel pen by Sakura, and it is finished. Thanks for checking it out!
