Happy Anniversary

My older brother and his wife celebrated their anniversary last week and this is the card that I sent to them.



I don't usually go towards the Bold Brights, but what I did was start with the coloring of the images with the Koh-I-Noor pencils and they just started to come out so nice and vibrant. So, that lead to the bright colors over all. And it seemed so fun once I was completed with it!

I used the CuttleBug for the background, it's great to have an image that doesn't add another color, but yet adds texture. I also used Stickles on the flowers, my first time! They are great for adding that touch of sparkle! I also Crystal Effected parts of each of the images.


Sets: Time Well Spent, All Year Cheer III
Paper: Pixie Pink, Orchid Opulence, Gable Green
Accessories: Koh-I-Noor Pencils with OMS, Stickles, Rhinestones, Light Orchid Grosgrain, Crystal Effects and Cuttlebug.
