Anniversary Wishes ....

Good morning!  I had a super day yesterday - lots of washing done, now it's just the ironing :))  I also managed to find time to play in my craft room.  I've made this card for two challenges - they seemed to go together perfectly:


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Musical Backgrounds, Big Day Additions; Say It with Style
Inks: Stazon - Jet Black; Distress - Antique Linen; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Textured gold paper, black & white card from stash; Cuttlebug EF - Swiss Dots


The colours for this week's Dynamic Duo are perfect for an anniversary card and I combined them with white to make a clean, simple and elegant card.  I cut mat layers in gold and black and a top layer of white card.  There is an option to include a musical theme on the Dynamic Duo challenge, so I stamped a couple of musical staves in Antique Linen, almost like a soft gold.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the simple, elegant sentiment - love, love this font!  To add some interest I embossed the top layer with Swiss Dots.  I kept the inside equally simple with a lovely sentiment.  


I can't get over how mild it is at the moment - everyone has been telling me that "normally" we'd have had snow by now - and stuff that sticks too!  But not yet - and I'm hoping it stays off for a while longer.  Anyway, that's all for now.  See you soon.
