Calypso Anniversary

Hi there and Happy Memorial Day to everyone!  I spent part of the day in my craft room, making an anniversary card among other things.  The sketch from this week's challenge at Paper Players was used for the card design.

The gorgeous designer paper is from the retiring Etcetera, which has a variety of eclectic, but very versatile designs.

The flower image from Blooming With Kindness was inked up in Calypso Coral, stamped off once, then stamped on a square of Confetti Cream.  The sentiment from a retired Hostess set, Something to Celebrate, was inked up in Early Espresso and stamped across the middle using a Stampamajig.

All in all a pretty simple card to make.  That's all for tonight.  Please be sure to use the link above to visit Paper Players; there is still plenty of time to join the challenge!  And if you have a moment, I'd love to hear from you as well!  Have a great week!

This is just gorgeous, Stef! I love these colors and how you stamped the floral image a bit lighter to make the sentiment stand out! Beautiful! Thanks so much for playing with my sketch challenge this week!
