I promised more anniversary cards and am here to deliver another one. I am playing along at TGIF Challenges! and this week is a remix challenge which requires that you combine at least 2 of the last three challenges on your project. I chose the sketch and the together forever theme.
To create the background, I cut strips of heavy cardboard in various widths and spaced them out on my big shot platform creating larger, more angled spaces as I moved to the bottom. I then embossed a piece of watercolor paper with these strips. I wanted the extra texture that water color paper would add to the card. My stamped images are from a retired Stampin' Up set, Valentine Defined. I used a variety of punches and dies to create the embellishment adding a few Sharpie colored pearls.
