Anniversary Wishes Card

Don't let this simple card fool you, the front of this card has sparkle paper underneath the ornamentation.  It really looks gorgeous.  When I bought a few sheets of paper I was clueless as to how I would use them (if EVER!)  But it really looks beautiful as the underneath background.  Here are the particulars:  Card size is 9 x 4 (tall card)
  • Card Stock:  Core-essentials collection in dark lavender
  • Paper:  Core'dinations elegance collection for sparkle paper, paper pizazz - patterened paper
  • Cricut cartridges:  Damask Decor-silhouette pg.41,  Damask Decor-Layer 2 pg. 36
  • VersaMagic chalk ink:  Purple hydrangea (all edges of paper except sparkle paper)
  • Bling:  JoLee's Rhinestones in dark purple and clear
  • Computer:  for the words and poem
That's all there is too it.  I liked the monochromatic theme that seemed to evolve on it's own with this card.  I wasn't headed in that direction, but that's where it went!  Thanks for stopping by and I would love your comments.  You can follow me by joining in the column on the right!
This card is entered in the Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #14 - Anniversary.
and the Paper Playtime CH#45-tall card.
