Happy Anniversary

Hi friends!  I have had this card made for quite some time now but we have had nothing but gray skies here lately so trying to get a good photo of it has been hard.  Thankfully, today was brighter.

I was a lucky winner of some Penny Black goodies a while back and one of those prizes was this amazing background stamp called Decadence.  I thought it was perfect for an anniversary card.  I embossed it on Soft Stone cardstock with white embossing powder.  Love the look.

I am entering this card over at Darnell's NBUS #1 challenge.  She is celebrating her landmark of 500 followers on her blog and wanted to celebrate.  NBUS is a cool term coined by Darnell - Never Before Used Schtuff, which we all have, right?!  She is one talented lady.   Of course, my NBUS item is the background stamp.  Such a fun idea, thank you Darnell.  This card would certainly go to a dear friend.  :)

Thank you for visiting today and have a great day!

Happy Father's Day to all the amazing Dad's out there.


  1. This looks like a card that is much more stunning IRL, Kristie! That white embossed background is so rich and elegant and I love that you used the angled die for your design! Of course, black and white are always perfect for a wedding or anniversary card!

    Thank you so much for your kind words, for playing in my NBUS Challenge, posting my button, and spreading the word to your readers! I am very appreciative!! I hope you had a fabulous Father's Day weekend! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Gorgeous card Kristie such striking colours...


  3. Holy wow! Love the way you embossed it, and than created that off-kilter cut and it's all pieced back together in it's embossed glory with that black layer to show it all off and make it pop! (I'm not sure that even made sense, but I stand by it because it's all good comments, even if you can't tell . . .. I swear!)

    Beautiful anniversary card!

  4. WOW, this is gorgeous. I love the split panels.

  5. Lovely card for the NBUS challenge. The background stamp is gorgeous and too good to leave unused, that's for sure. Thanks for becoming a follower over at my blog - of course, I've returned the compliment :) Elizabeth xx

  11. Hello, Kristie! Your card is gorgeous! I really love that background stamp and this card looks so elegant and classy, especially with the angle die-cut. I had a look around your blog and I love your CAS style - I have so much trouble with CAS cards but just love the clean look and really want to get back to that style.
