Anniversary Wishes...

Hello!  Another one card, three challenges post!  My card today is for the following challenge:  Waltzingmouse, CR84FN and Shabby Tea Room.   The colors for CR84FN this week are pink, black & cream which worked nicely with the inspiration idea from Shabby Tea Room of doilies & lace.   The Waltzingmouse sketch is a perfect canvas for both challenges.   I just love the inspiration photos from both CR84FN and Shabby Tea Room.  They are both so beautiful!   I just couldn't resist trying to come up with a card!



I used stamps from Waltzingmouse (Victorian Frippery & Frame It) and PaperTrey Ink (Turning a New Leaf) for the card.  I was able to get the matching Turning a New Leaf dies and had been wanting to try them out so I used them on this card.  I love "fussy" cutting, but boy oh boy having those dies sure makes it a snap to cut out those leaf shapes and then stamp them!   I used the large rolled rose die from My Favorite Things to make the black felt rose. 

I really like how the card turned out.... clean and simple with a few little touches of shabby!   Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI true black & cream; PP:  Stampin Up! Night & Day; Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black & Angel Pink; Dies:  PTI Turning a New Leaf, My Favorite Things Rolled Rose, Spellbinders Fancy Tags; Black Felt; pearl; Stamps:  WMS Frame It & Victorian Frippery; PTI Turning a New Leaf
