Sketch Challenge - Anniversary Wishes
Hey Hey - it's time for another sketch challenge - this time from StampTV. I love trying new layouts to help spark my creativity :-)
This one was hosted by the talented Melissa Shultz.
So, I just received my package of new paper that I won (woo hoo) from PaperTemptress during the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's event. It was more beautiful than my wildest dreams! I have been dying to use Rupa's new set from Gina K Designs called With This Ring. I decided to use this week's Stamp TV sketch challenge and my new Luster Laser Silver paper along with the new Vintage Silver Luster paper to create this anniversary card. I couldn't completely keep to the sketch with the embellishments but since this is a non-traditional card size (4x8) I added my pearl embellishments along the bottom.
The luster laser silver paper has a pattern to it that makes it just gorgeous in person. It is hard to photograph so I apologize that I'm not doing it justice. I tried to photograph a close up so you could see the luster laser.
I used the vintage silver luster for the inside and as the mat for the front and it is amazing! It's always a challenge to try non-traditional card sizes but this one allowed me to really use several of the images from this set!
Thanks for looking - hugs n smiles.
