Fairytale Romance Card

Yesterday was me and hubby's 9th wedding anniversary... kind of hard to believe we've been together 10 years now! We celebrated by doing one of our favorite things- getting gelati at Rita's.



Mmmm! Yummy Italian ice mixed with some of the best frozen custard. We even won a free quart of Cotton Candy ice- one of my favorites!

I must have been in a romantic mood when I was cardmaking, because here is what I made:



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Artistic Etchings, Full of Life
Ink: Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Cameo Coral, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White cardstock; Newsprint DSP, Greenhouse Gala DSP, The Write Stuff DSP
Accessories: Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, Scallop Edge punch, Modern Label Punch

The colors and use of a label came from the most recent Embellish Magazine challenge. I love yellow and coral together and I think Cameo Coral is one of the retiring SU! colors that I will miss most. Isn't it pretty with the new Daffodil Delight?

I created my own patterned paper using a stamp from the Artistic Etchings set and Early Espresso ink- stamping onto the Cameo Coral cardstock using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to guide me. I think there is a pattern like this in the new color family DSPs...

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day! I'm gearing up for a weekend crop at my favorite local store, Scrapdoodles! I've got a list of things to work on including swaps for convention! Hee!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is darling! I love the card! Happy Anniversary to you as well. I'm a new follower, and even though I haven't had time for stamping in the past few months (hope that changes soon) :-( I'm also a SU! Demo here in VA! Nice to meet you!

Happy Anniversary. This is a really lovely card, have to admit I am partial to my favourite image being the Eiffel Tower.

I'm completely in love w/this card! Didn't even blink at the set when I saw it and now I'm kinda green w/envy. Doubt I could do anything as lovely as this card!

Fab-U-Lous card! I LOVE the patterned paper you created. Too bad we're losing Cameo Coral...this really is a great combo. TFS!
