Happy Anniversary

Anne Harmon is the hostess this week for the Stampin' B's Design Team and she asked we make an anniversary card. Why? Anne is celebrating her wedding anniversary today so a BIG congrats to her.
I should have made mine RED because that is her favorite color. Inking in Red is her blog if you would like to wish her a big, happy anniversary.

This was a really simple card to make. I stamped the beautiful heart from Mark's Finest Papers set called Hearts, Hearts, Hearts three times. Stacked them one on top of the other. I am using my punch around the page (double loop) by Martha Stewart and my all time favorite Cuttlebug embossing folder-Textile, Just added a ribbon and pearl and that's it.

I am so taken with how the scallops are set off by the embossing... very dramatic and adds so much to your card. Thanks for sharing with our 1st Crafting When We Can Challenge :)
