Lily Pad Embossing Challenge.

 Tomorrow is my 29th Wedding Anniversary and I always find making an Anniversary card for my DH quite hard, I didn't want anything too sloppy as we have been married along time now and male anniversary cards are always a challenge.  I always associate red with romance so that's how I started this card (Also red is one of hubbys favourite colours!)  The heart embossing folder for the cuttlebug is one I use quite a bit for wedding cards and it looks lovely embossed in red!
Here is a closer view, as you can see I have used my favourite cling fabric design stamp for the background, that stamp is so versatile.
I am entering this into The Lily Pads monthly challenge, which is embossing, either heat embossing or dry embossing, check out their blog the DT have done an amzing job with their inspiration cards.
Have a great week!



Supplies: Hero Arts Stamps CG245 Classic Fabric Design. S5507 Envelope Pattern. Fired Brick Distress ink.  Cuttlebug floder. Pearls and Patterned paper.

Happy Anniversary, Sally! 29 years- quite an accomplishment :) I really like the embossing here, and especially the bg with the fabric and envie stamps. I'm sure hubby will love this knowing it was made from the heart :)

I love this card Sally! I also wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for the Liebster Award (basically a way to draw a few more followers, hopefully) as I love your work and feel those who have not seen it yet will too. I hope you find this a fun thing and not an irritation. Have a wonderful day!
