Happy Anniversary...

Happy Friday!  Yep – I say it practically every week!  Today’s card is an anniversary card in memory of my parents’ 60th wedding anniversary.  My folks were able to share 53 wonderful years together.  Mom reminded me the other day that it would be their 60th so I decided I would mark the occasion. 6 (501x640)

I drew inspiration for this card from the House of Cards current challenge.  As it happened, I had stamps that mimic the picture in the inspiration picture.  I used my Rubbernecker abstract poppies stamps, starting with the outline in black and two shades of yellow.  I added a black frame made from my MFT cross stitch dies and then a sentiment. 7 (640x360)

This card serves another purpose, as the House of Cards is having a design team call so I am throwing my hat into the ring.

Don’t forget about the Retro Rubber challenge – use some ribbon or twine and old stamps and link up your project HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I am off for the weekend but will be back on Monday!

Supplies:  CS:  PTI white.  SU! basic black.  Stamps:  Rubbernecker abstract poppies.  Altenew vintage roses.  Dies:  PTI linen impression plate.  MFT cross stitch dies.  Inks:  SU! crushed curry and daffodil delight.  Memento black.
