Recently I needed an anniversary card and a birthday card for crafty friends, so it was a good opportunity to launch another assault on the stash mountain challenge.
Here's what I made
This was for Tracey and Neil, a lovely couple, and my lovely friends. After I photographed this, I decided to add a small '25th' on the horizontal band. Congratulations to you both.
The flowers are wild roses by Sheena Douglas (matching stamps and dies). I love the heart die (Cha cha cha)
I love the dog roses on this card ( a mixture of Susan's Garden and cha cha cha) But sadly the subtle differences in the 2 papers I used proved too subtle for the camera and they look the same. I'm really pleased with the lacy squares dies, though - I think I'll get a lot of use out of them.
There's still a lot of the paper pad left, but luckily I've found another pad which goes with it, so I can shift the colour scheme a bit. I think Kirstie Marcotte is cleverer in her choice of pad for her challenges, as she seems to have more variety. Despite being a fan of soft muted shades, I'm beginning to feel I have looked at these papers for long enough. Not ready for giving up yet, though 😀
