Happy Anniversary

Today is my daughter and son-in-law's wedding anniversary......so Happy Anniversary, Robin and Bill. This is the card that I made for them using this week's Inspirational Card Sketches sketch #12.

The paper is from a Provo Craft Celebrations pad of paper. The lovebirds are a freebie download at Pollycraft and I used colored pencils to do the coloring. I added Mulberry flowers fastened with a brad and accented with grosgrain ribbon. Self-stick gems finished it off giving a little bling.

I love the way Karen finishes off the inside of her cards so I worked on the inside of the card also. (My attempt in no way compares to her gorgeous cards).

You've heard of writer's block. Well, I think I am experiencing cardmaker's block. I just can't seem to really focus on making cards. I see all these wonderful sketches but then just draw a blank when it comes to selecting paper, embellishments, etc. I look at my supply of paper and go YUK! Maybe I need to find some new paper designs to get my creative juices flowing again.

Luck, love and laughter,
Judy
