Happy 1st Anniversary

Hi Everyone:  The card I am sharing today is for friends who are celebrating their 1st Anniversary.  I wish them happiness and love.

The inspiration for this card came from MOJO150 and Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 41

Stamps: Punch Potpourri (Hostess Gift Level 1), Whimsical Words (Retired)

Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy, Marina Mist
Accessories: Scallop Edge Border Punch, Butterfly Punch, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Basic Pearls

I used a new technique (at least new to me).  I sponged the Vintage Wallpaper EF with Night of Navy ink and used the Crumb Cake in the EF.  I do like how it turned out.

The basic pearls are new to the Stampin' Up! product line and add a bit of elegance. 

You too can have the Hostess Level 1 set by hosting a workshop and having $200 in sales (less taxes and shipping costs)

The smoke from the fires is still with us.  Yesterday was very brutal, air quality is very low and you could hardly see the hills around the valley.  It is supposed to rain this weekend, however, we are also to get some thunderstorms with lightening and of course there is the possibility of more fires.  I am keeping my fingers crossed.

So until next time....
