Slimline Anniversary

I have several Fall wedding anniversaries in our family so because of that I decided to make a slimline anniversary card using a stencil from Artplorations called Peeking Sunflowers. I just love this stencil and am so glad I bought it. I ordered mine in the heavier form so that it would withstand more harsh use. And, it is just perfect.


I added the Happy Anniversary die cut sentiment from Tonic Studios and also stamped a couple bees which were in a set I won from a Stamps of Life set called Jars 2. With a Bic pen I added some dots to the center of the sunflowers and I thought it sort of dressed it up a bit more. The inks I used were from Gina K. Designs and I used blending brushes to add the colors through the stencil.

I am entering this in the following:

Stamplorations Never Ending Challenge-Anything Goes


I just love working with stencils and I hope you like the project I did with this beautiful one. Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day!

God bless,
Verna

Super stunning card design, Verna! What autumnal colors! I was staring at the Happy Anniversary die cut, and what do you know? I have the same one that is on a magnetized lamp shade right next to my bed. I had used it and could not find the folder it came in, I think Spellbinders. LOL! It happens! And that you for the heads up on the digi sale!!!
