Happy Anniversary

Best vacation ever. Honestly. Although the weather is poor by California standards, it is wonderful to stay in the cabin and play with my stamps. I have made at least 10 cards so far and as it is cloudy today...looks like this will be another fun day for me. My husband, not so much! Today I have an anniversary card inspired by all the ombre cards I have been seeing lately. One of the dies I brought with me on vacation is the heart border die from PTI. It seemed like the perfect die to use to re-create an ombre style card.

 

I also used Background Basics Sheet Music and one of the fillable frames images. I cut a mask and first stamped the music and then the frame. The sentiment is from Beautiful Butterflies which has one of my favorite fonts. I was going for a fairly flat card with only the one layer of die cuts on it. I love all these pretty pink colors. Thanks for taking a look and listening to me ramble. I am adding a picture of what is going on right outside my window as I type this. Shh! I guess you aren't supposed to feed the deer, but we love watching them!

Oh my goodness …looks like heaven on earth to me outside your cabin door!
This card is so pretty I love the gradual color change of the hearts, I have to admit I had to look up “Ombre” for cards I was not sure what that was. Shhh don't tell anyone. Mums the word on feeding the dear!
Gorgeous Anniversary card! I hope Warren reads! Or maybe you can get him to clean up your craft mess.

Hi Cathy! Glad you are having a great vacation and getting some crafty time in. Your card is beautiful - I love all the shades of pink - the sweet hearts, and the clean look of your card. That deer is beautiful - what a view - you're never going to want to leave!

Oh, I would love to look out and see a deer! The most we have are opossoms & raccoons--not so elegant and usually just in the yard causing trouble! Sounds like a wonderful vacation spot. Do you bird watch too? Love your pretty anniversary card--the hearts are perfect!

So beautiful Cathy. I love the rows of beautifully colored colored hearts too, so perfect with that sheet music. Love your sweet deer too, how fun to be out in nature.
