September 5, 2018 - Happy Anniversary

Wow - September - the summer has gone so quickly - in a couple more weeks will be seeing the leaves will start turning.  We live in the woods so fall is always a favorite time of the year. 
This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is designer choice - and our rock star is Laurie.  Her choice was to make an anniversary card. 

I knew instantly I needed some more anniversary stamps (on my next order) so I went with what I had available and I think it turned out fine.  The stamps I used
were 10401-O large dotted rectangle frame, 2508I To Those  1218H Heart Balloons. 
I had a scrap - just enough -for my background DP, so I embossed the rectangle in silver to use as my focal point.  - using my Misti I put the sentiment in the center and embossed with silver then placed a heart balloon on each side of the sentiment - again embossed in silver - thinking it still needed just a bit of bling I used a single bling on each balloon then tied some fine silver cord n a small bow and placed it on the string.
 Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Anniversary - as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge to win.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions. 

If you look on my right side bar I also have a discounted coupon for you to use when you go shopping at Repeat Impressions.
Now why not take a look at our DT Rock Stars for inspiration and to get you started.
