I love doing sketch challenges, but I don't always find the time to actually do them. However, I had an Anniversary card that I needed to make for Sunday, so I went through all of this weeks sketches that I printed out and decided to use one from The Pink Elephant.Challenge #33. This just seemed like it would make such an elegant card.
The DP and cardstock is from the Silhouette Paper Pack from Close to my Heart.
The "50th" is from the "Friendship Alphabet" set, which was a special several months ago, And Happy Anniversary is from the "Love Always"
The scan doesn't show this very well, but the ribbon is gold and the "50th" is embossed with Gold EP. Also not showing is the Colonial White Card Base that this is mounted onto. I hate scans, but it's night time and I use my camera in natural light only. Maybe I can change it tomorrow.
The paper that is punched with the Martha Stewart Lace Punch is actually the old metallic Cardstock from Close to my Heart. I knew I was hanging onto that all of these years for a reason! *Ü*
The stitching around the card was done by hand with matching embroidery floss.
