Well, my wonderful husband and I have hit our 9th wedding anniversary! I say "hit" because we haven't had a chance to celebrate yet. He actually had to travel to California for work on our anniversary. But since we never celebrate on the actual day of anything, no biggie!
I used Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge that she posts on her blog Poetic Artistry. Julee also is the designer behind the Verve Visual stamps, which by the way I love the two just released! I am trying to figure out if I can get one or both!!
Anyway, I used the couple in the Summer by the Sea...embossed them in Crystal Clear and then bleached the image. I love bleaching these sketch images! I also embossed the canvas background on the bottom part of the card. The You & Me saying comes from the hostess stamp set "So Many Sayings"...which I am becoming very tempted to unmount and cut it so all of the sayings are separate. I like the addition of the Hodgepodge Hardware and the melted organdy ribbon tied to the spiral clip. Ever done that before? It is real easy...just heat the tied ribbon and watch it curl! Nothing too crazy, but I like it.
