Colorful Anniversary Card

My Mom asked me to make an Anniversary card
for her to send to one of my Aunt and Uncles.
I made several for her to choose from.
This is the one she picked.
Luckily I had an "extra ounce" postage stamp
still so she didn't need to go to the post office.
This card is bumpy and would require the extra postage
since it is non machinable.

Most supplies used came from Stampin' Up!:
Lasting Elegance die (recently retired)
All Year Cheer stamp set (from 2000 or so)
white embossing powder and Versamark ink
Simply Pressed Clay rose element
card stocks

polka dot ribbon scrap, unknown

homemade alcohol ink sprays to create background,
pink and yellow

I'll share a couple more cards soon that I created
with scraps of card stock I used to soak up
the over spray from making this background.

There will be a couple more Anniversary cards, too.

Thanks for looking =)

 It's been a while since I've 
participated in a challenge,
here or anywhere really.

Retro Rubber was one of my favorites
since nearly all of my stamps are 10-20 years old!


  1. It has been a while since you played with us! Good to see you back and strong. That is the nicest thing I've seen with that die. I can see why you mother picked it. Thanks for joining us again at Retro Rubber Challenge.

  2. This is so pretty. I love that die! And the colours are lovely. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
