A Special Anniversary

Hi there and happy Monday!  Today I'm sharing a card made for a friend's special anniversary.  Stampin' Up! Framelits were used to cut out the hearts.  The large background heart was embossed with the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder, then the edges were sponged for a vintage look.  The sentiment is stamped with Gold Encore ink.  It was also used direct-to-paper on a piece of Vanilla cardstock before cutting out the leaves with the retired Little Leaves Sizzlit.  Originally, I tried Champagne Glimmer paper but the color clashed with the gold ink.  The flowers were made with the retired Itty Bitty Punch Pack and the current Itty Bitty Accessory Pack.  Of course, small pearls were added to the centers for a finishing touch.  What would flowers be without a butterfly?  Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches to the rescue!  Teena Thompson's card posted on our Demonstrator-only web site was the inspiration for my card.  It appears that she made an easel type card.  Here is a photo of her card.
Love her puffy flowers.  But for mailing purposes, I kept mine less dimensional.  Thanks for the inspiration, Teena!

Must sign off now to run some errands.  Thank you so much for stopping in today!
