A little Anniversary Mojo

Tomorrow is my and my husband's 9th Wedding Anniversary. I can hardly believe it! To celebrate this special day I of course made my hubby a card. Mojo Monday had a gorgeous sketch that I thought would work well with the Artistic Etchings Stamp Set and Trinket Key I was planning on using for my card. This Anniversary post is also very fitting because this is my 100th blog post!!!  I can't believe it!

I used the Newsprint Designer Series Paper in the current IB&C as well as the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder to emboss the top piece of DSP.  Stamping on textured card stock isn't always my thing, but it worked well with the Eiffel Tower. As I started putting it together I worried it was a bit busy with the layered Newsprint DSP. In the end though I think it worked well! Although everything on this card is Very Vanilla, Early Espresso and Basic Black, I did the scallop circle in Cherry Cobbler to make it pop a bit. This really pulled the card together.

I love the Trinket Keys to add a little "je ne sais quoi" to those extra-special cards. Keys can be symbolic in many ways but on this card it symbolizes the "key to my heart".  Pretty darn sappy, eh?


Enjoy - next time I'll show you how to make those adorable pansies from last Monday's Mojo Challenge! In the mean time, keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
