Hello everyone!

She said yes! The proposal went as romantically as my colleague had planned. She loved the cards and the tag. It was as perfect as he wanted it to be.

Today's card is based on the 2 Sketches 4 You challenge. It is a 25th anniversary card for the sister of a colleague.

The background paper is Stampin' Up Rich Razzleberry Designer Paper. The layered elements are Stampin' Up Not Quite Navy, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White. The Rich Razzleberry element is textured with Spellbinders Flourish Impressabilities. The silver strip is from Canford and is textured with Sizzix Small Dots and highlighted with Silver Stickles. The ribbon is from Offray.

My colleague knew what colours she wanted so it was fairly easy to pull this card together. She also wanted the personalized element to be raised. I'm not certain about the silver strip. I wanted to incorporate some silver for to represent this milestone anniversary but I've never been all that pleased with this paper. The Stickles certainly help it out. I can't wait to use up the few sheets of this paper and be done with it. It was awfully fun working with my colleague putting this card together. I hope it will be just as she envisioned.

Please enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
