Stars & Stamps Blog Sketch Challenge #28

This is my card I created for the S&S Sketch Challenge #28.  This layout is a little more complicated then my usual, but I needed to make an Anniversary card for my daughter and it worked out great using this sketch!

I apologize for the picture it is terrible! I tried scanning it and then taking the picture with my camera. The colors are all wrong but I wanted to share it anyway.

I used a leftover Dove & Heart sticker Die Cut (the heart is silver silk, don't know why it photoed pink) from a Wedding layout popped up on lime green pattern paper, some Happy Anniversary white with silver writing ribbon, Purple cardstock as their mats, 3 strips of white cardstock that is silver matted, 3 lime green itsy bitsy flowers with mini purple brads in the corner (hiding a ribbon cutting mistake) and everything is on a pale orange (not pink) Pattern Paper covered card. All edges are inked with Stazon Purple! I put a lovely DCWV Vellum quote inside on purple cardstock with a matching flower but my Vellum Tape (suppose to not show through) did not work, so I didn't take a picture of it.

Does anyone know of a Vellum Tape Runner that really works?  I have bought 3 now that is suppose to be for Vellum and none of them are clear.


  1. Have you sent my card yet, my anniversary is this saturday you know! Cute card can't wait to receive it!

  2. Oh Shelli is too funny! She got a preview. Very pretty card, I like the sentiment running at the top.

    I haven't found a vellum tape that works right either. I've just decided I have to cover it up with something. Usually I use a ribbon running on the top or something.

  3. Such a pretty card! A long time ago when I first began scrapbooking, I bought a double roll pack of wackytac vellum adhesive from QVC that really works. I don't even know if that company still exists, but if you can find it, it works perfectly!


I really appreciate any comments left, good or bad, as they help me grow and brighten up my day. Thanks for visiting my blog!
