Anniversary Card

by Amy Bowerman

Another inspiring photo from Cath over at the Moxie Fab World.  This weeks  Tuesday trigger IS indeed “Classically Modern.”

Oh how I wish I could decorate my bedroom like this! Alas, that white bed spread wouldn’t stand a chance with my 5-year-old and 4 “fur kids” so instead I shall pay it homage with a card.  My parents 38th Anniversary is tomorrow and this trigger was the perfect jumping off point for a card for them.  Not only is it their anniversary but it is also the one year anniversary of when I made my first card (without crayons of course).  Here is my take on the trigger.

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!

Like the trigger photo I wanted to keep things clean and simple yet elegant.  I love the crisp white and cool blues together and wanted to carry that theme in my card.   I  noticed in the headboard portion of the trigger photo there were some soft grays as well so I added that in for a little contrast.  I repeatedly stamped the rose image on white cardstock with Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans Ranger Distress ink.  I used watermark resist ink also from Ranger to stamp “All things grow with Love” which is from Ink-a-dink-a-doo’s “Spring Mini Assortment”.  Again, I used Faded jeans distress ink to color the image.  The card itself and the white strip in the middle are shimmer cardstock from recollections.  I really loved the wall hanging in the photo and couldn’t wait to include it in my design.  I used a McGill “Sparkle” punch and some silver shimmer cardstock to recreate the silver spokes and topped it off with a pearl brad I had in my stash.  Thanks for swinging by :0)

I love how you included the wall hanging – and I went for my Faded Jeans ink too, great minds think alike 😉
