Bon Anniversaire Mon Ami

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a great week!! My parents' anniversary is next Wednesday and each year I get recruited by both to make a card for the other. So this is the card for my Dad to give my Mom :)


All of the paper is from My Mind's Eye Madison Avenue stack, except for the white heavy cardstock base, which is from Canvas Corp. The base of the card is a Spellbinders Grand Rectangles, embossed with the Cuttlebug Plum Blossom embossing folder and then lightly brushed with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The next layer is a Spellbinders Grand Labels Four. The frame is a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen, with a smaller Labels Eighteen used for the cut-out. The edges were inked with Victorian Velvet. The corner designs are from Spellbinders French Frills set, with gems added. The Eiffel Tower is also from French Frills, adorned with more gems.


The label is also from French Frills, stamped with Just Rite Stamps Ooh La La French Frills stamp set in Victorian Velvet. "Bon Anniversaire Mon Ami" is from Just Rite's Shabby Chic Labels Four stamp set. The middle portion was popped up with foam tape for dimension.


The ribbon is from May Arts. The button and love charm are from Hobby Lobby.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art Thankful Thursday Challenge - Anything Goes
  2. Sunday Funday #3 - Linky Party
  3. Simon Says Stamp and Show - Inspiration Francaise
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)
