Graphic 45 Time To Celebrate - Dancing Couple

While I was thinking anniversary for this card I think it could possibly pass for a wedding card and maybe even a birthday card. 

Supplies Used: 
Various Cardstock  
Bazzill Swiss Dot Ribbon
EK Success Border Punch
Mounting Foam Squares
Queen & Company Pearls

The image was very large and took up a lot of the card so I did cut off part of the bottom so it fit better and then incorporated the ribbon and banner to camouflage how I had to cut the image off. I actually had to talk myself into cutting off the bottom because....well, OCD ya know! But I think it worked out in the end.

I picked up the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland the last time I was in Houston and this is the first time I've been able to use it. My friend Carmen actually said "You know you don't need that" and while I wanted to smack her for saying such words I just told her "I may not need it but I want it" and so I got it! *okie thinks she sure showed Carmen*

I did use my McGill Flower Blossom Kit to help shape the flowers. If you like to make flowers and don't have tools to help shape them I highly recommend them! It really helps bring the flowers to life, as much life as there can be in paper flowers anyway. I generally use some Glimmer Spray to wet the flowers a little for shaping but this time I just spritzed with water. 

I think I have another birthday card for tomorrow but I really can't remember. But it is a card using the same paper collection.

  1. Love this card Shirley. What a great anniversary or wedding card ... Oh heck, it's a great card to celebrate any occasion. I guess you really did show Carmen you were right about the Tim Holtz tattered flower garland, because those flowers not only look amazing, they also accessorize your card perfectly!
