Happy Anniversary

I squeezed in another card making session; it hit me that July is just days away, which means that parent's anniversary snuck up on me yet again :)

I made the card based on Mercy's Tuesday sketch, and I pulled the colors from the gorgeous flower (which I received as a RAK quite some time ago, but just recently rediscovered). I paired it up with some BasicGrey Sultry paper, and the sentiment is SU (Hugs & Wishes). I did make one happy little discovery today: I was trying to figure out what to do for the center of the flower when I noticed a scrap of paper that had been embossed with the CB bloom dots folder. Hmmm... wonder if I have a punch that would fit one of those circles? Yep, the 3/4 circle punch is a perfect fit! I punched it, accented the embossing with some metallic rub, then attached it to the flower with a mini brad. I love this look, and I definitely want to play around with it more.

'Nuff chat, I'm off and running again!
