Happy Anniversary Sweetie (inspired by the H2H Challenge)

Yesterday, my hubby and I celebrated our 11th Wedding Anniversary and I had been putting this card together in my head all week after seeing the color challenge on the Heart2Heart Website.  It reminded me of a sunset and though it would be perfect.

I didn't want the ink sponging to cover my stamped images so I embossed the couple on the bench and the tree with VersaMark Ink and then My Exclusive Inks in Barn Red and Clear Embossing Powder all from CTMH.  The stamped images are from My Acrylix Childhood Portrait, another fave set of mine.

Finally, I just love the textured look of folded, twisted and torn paper so I found some scraps in the colors I needed from some My Reflections Kits I had laying around.  The Barn Red paper is from Passages and the Sunset paper is from the brand new Olivia set.

All these supplies can be purchased here on my website 24/7.  And if you order $100 in supplies through the month of November, you will not only get the Stamp of the Month, Many Thanks for FREE but you will also earn ANY other stamp of your CHOICE also completely FREE!  If you go in on this great promotion with a friend and order through me you can ALSO earn $25 MORE in FREE select product to split!  (Applicable only through me and not online).

What are you waiting for?

Live, Love, Create and have a Craftabulous day!
