Hello, and welcome to another Friday Funday challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack. This week we have a fan favorite: Anything Goes
Our fabulous sponsors are Sami Stamps and Little Blue Button Stamps. I have had a bunch of Sami Stamps digis that I haven't gotten to use yet, so I chose to use this adorable "Winter Romance" image. And since it is a winter image, I decided to get ahead of the game and make an anniversary card for my parents. Their anniversary is the day after Christmas, so I know this is waaaaaaaay in advance, but it always sneaks up on me. My mom's favorite color is red so that was the basis for the color scheme AND the red coat.
I made the background paper starting with a musical background stamp that I stamped off on a scrap paper first to mute it a bit. Then I stamped the embroidered background stamp and finished it off with some black flourishes.I LOVE how it turned out and will probably be using this idea a lot. I thought the little doily die looked like a snowflake and it looks fabulous under the sentiment circle.
Now I just have to remember to actually give it to them on time! I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us this week.
