Cherished Anniversary

Hello everyone,

Today's card was commissioned from a colleague who is celebrating her third wedding anniversary this week. My colleague is anything but traditional so it was my intention to work outside the traditonal with this card. I loosely used today's Mojo Monday sketch as a starting point. Other challenges are last week's Crafty Creations asked for a wedding or anniversary card. Sunday's Just Scraps is an anything goes challenge. Today's Kaboodle Doodles challenge was to use metal.

The background paper is DCWV Textured Brights cardstock. The purple paper is BasicGrey Wisteria. The focal square is DCWV Luxury Stack layered on a scrap of Stampin' Up Basic Black. The embellishments are Close To My Heart Fancy Fuzz and Making Memories brads. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Warm Words.

I'm fairly confident that my colleague will like this card. It is not a traditional anniversary card but it still has some traditional elements blended with modern elements. I think it workds very well.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
