Love U so Much (Anni-VERVE-sary Day 2)

 Good Morning Everyone!

Once again, I'm on my out the door again this morning. I sure have been busy lately, so I'm very glad the weekend is here! I want to share with you my card for the 2nd release challenge for Verve's Anni-VERVE-sary challenge. I'm still trying to play a bit of catch up (see note above about being busy! LOL) Oh my goodness! There is so much going on in Verve World this week, it's enough to make your head spin!! Which is awesome, cause there's lots of chances to win great prizes for new stamps which will soon be available in the Verve Store. Be sure to visit the Verve Blog to find out all the details about everything you need to do to get on this fun celebration!

The challenge for day 2 was to make an Anniversary (loosely interpreted as a "love" card) that contained a silver or wood element which are the modern and traditional gifts given for 5 year anniversary gift. I used this week's SCS sketch challenge along with this week's Color Throwdown challenge. (I don't have the exact SU colors; but I think I found comparable equivalents!) For my silver element, I embossed a strip of Aluminum foil with a "Hearts" embossing folder as well as adding some silver stickles as shown. I used Verve's "You and I" set (along with coordinating "I heart you" Cut above Die Set) I also use the set "Tag Time" and the "Curvy Bookplate" Die

Now, it's a little hard to see in the picture; but I did add scoring lines to the Aqua Mist background for another element of texture. I decided not to link this one up for anymore challenges, since I'm a bit pressed for time.

I do hope you like it. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you all again sometime this weekend (or maybe not until Monday!)

All those details to this card are wonderful. The embossed foil, glitter x's on the embossed panel and then scoring on the card base, love it!
