Happy Anniversary

Hello!!

Today i'm playing along with the Runway Inspired Challenge #74. Because, well.... its orange dress, so i had to play along! (if you don;t know orange is my favorite color!!!) I was making a holder for my stickles with my Silhouette and it cut a ton of these circles. At first i placed the circles in my extras stash, but then i got to thinking that the orange card stock i used was perfect for this challenge!

So i pulled out a white card base and glued on almost all of the circles, trimming ones that went over the edge. Next i stamped the poppy images from Altenew's Painted Poppy stamp set. I inked up most of the flower with black ink, except for the center, i used a red Distress Marker to color the flower center. I did this twice, then cut out both flowers.

Next i cut a strip of white card stock and stamped the sentiment Happy Anniversary from the same set. Then i stamped the 'to the love of my life' underneath Anniversary coloring it with the red distress marker first.

I added the flowers with foam dots, then the sentiment strip, trimming off the extra. I also had to trim a little of one of the flower stems.
