Combining Challenges Once Again,

Good Morning Everyone!

Yes, once again I have combined challenges. It's so much easier than trying to do a separate card for everything. Today's card is a combination of the SCS sketch challenge and this week's Color Inspiration from Kristina Werner. I usually try to do both of these on Wednesday; but I didn't get to it until this morning. I am giving this card to my husband tomorrow for our 10th wedding anniversary. I really liked these colors that Kristina chose this week because I thought they were easy to use to create a masculine card but I also felt like I was still able to add a bit of a feminine touch to it as well. I started with a Pumpkin Pie base and added a piece of Close to Cocoa, then I cut a piece of Saffron 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 and added two purple strips to each side. I didn't actually have Elegant Eggplant, so I substituted the closest thing that I have. I cut (4) 1" squares in the same purple and added the prima flowers with the gold eyelets attaching it all to the Saffron piece. I used the flower stamp from the "Fresh Cuts" Set around three of the sides in Saffron ink and then stamped the Sentiment at the bottom in Pumpkin Pie. I stamped the center image, which is from an old Sale-a-bration set in Lavender Lace on glossy white and attached it to a small square of Close to Cocoa. I attached to entire Saffron piece with pop up squares the card base.
So, that's all for me today. I think my husband has surprise anniversary activities planned for me tomorrow. I've no idea what or where they may lead me, but I'm super excited to find out. Chances are, therefore, that I won't be able to post tomorrow; but I'll post on Saturday if I'm able. Have a great day and thanks for visiting with me.
