Tall Anniversary Card

I spent a couple of hours in my craft room today and made a tall anniversary card (5 x 8). The card base and next layer are Core'dinations Roy G Biv paper. I ran the darker pink through the Cuttlebug with the Sizzix Swiss dots folder. You can't tell in the pic, but the patterned paper is so pretty with silver accents. The monkeys were cut from Create a Critter using scrap paper. The bow for the female monkey is from Once Upon A Princess using Core Couture. The balloons are from Birthday Bash, also using Core Couture.  I used my Gypsy to add the I, heart and U from Base Camp inside circles from George and Basic Shapes. I was really wishing I had a stamp that said "your love lifts me up" but since I didn't, I used "love has wings." The crystal design was added from my iRock and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. I swear I have lots of ribbon, but I keep coming back to this one. The pink trimmed in silver is so pretty and it makes such nice bows!

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
  1. Cooking With Cricut Challenge #30 - project with a balloon
  2. Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #14 - anniversary
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a GREAT weekend :D
