Originally, I was going to make this Everlasting Beauty card in just black and white.  But, you never know where it’s going to wind up after you start playing…lol.  I’m loving this In Color Textured Specialty paper, and it’s been a while since I pulled out my Orchid Oasis colors.  Even though my first draft was just stamped in Orchid Oasis, I decided it looked better fully colored in.

Of course, since it’s an anniversary card, I also used Wink of Stella glitter all over it too.  Also, I can’t get enough of the Exposed Brick 3D embossing folder.  It’s the perfect background for so many stamp sets!

Since this was a stamp club card this month, I had several leftovers (I always make a few extras).  So, I finished all my leftovers except to put the bows on them…lol.  And, have I mentioned that I’m obsessed with angled elements…I love putting angled paper across a card front.

This Everlasting Beauty card was our fairly quick & easy one this month with only one die cut for the greeting.  The Sending dies had the perfect sized die for the Happy Anniversary.

Colors (ink & card stock): Orchid Oasis, Memento Black, Parakeet Party, Starry Sky (greeting), Basic White


Happy Stampin’
