Thinking of You Anniversary

Hello friends!  I've got a simple anniversary card today, as a break from the fancier, more time-intensive creations I featured the last few days.


I try to keep my supply of cards flowing to the boutique where they are sold, so people always see something new and different when they shop.  My Weddings/Anniversaries category is dwindling.  Time to restock!  Although I love to do shabby chic/vintage designs most often, there are buyers who aren't into that.  They want something crisp and simple, like this.

I'm playing along in Verve's Diva Dare Fanspiration 2012 challenge.  To play, we need to choose a creation by a non-Diva from the Verve Gallery.  I chose THIS card by Luanne Ford.  She used a lively purple and bright green combo, and some yummy buttons too.  :o)  I kept the color combo and use of a button, but went with a CAS design.

The flower is made with a scalloped circle punch, with some 'petals' cut into it.  The leaves come from a 5-Petal Flower punch.  


I am also entering this in the Go Fish challenge, CAS Anniversary.


Thanks for visiting me today!

Sweet little flower Colleen! So happy your cards are selling at the boutique! We used to have a great store for that in our are, they closed a couple of years ago, just when I was in the groove!!! Enjoy your Sunday and thanks for your visits and sweet comments!

Fun card! I have some of the gold corduroy buttons and that would look smashing with this flower. Thanks for the idea! Great that your cards are selling. I am sure if I lived near you, I would buy some for inspiration for sure!

Such a gorgeous CAS card, Colleen! I have taken such a liking to CAS and could almost do them all the time. Guess I couldn't give up all the embellies completely, though..not to mention dp.

Love the flower and the wonderful colors you've chosen.
