Always late to the party... OK, now I need a belated anniversary card. Oh, I have one!
Happy belated 42nd to Darnell and the Mister. You want to see the beautiful bride, check out this photo. You want to see the stud she married, check out this photo. (Uh, did you notice, there's actually a super cool card in that post too?) You want to get a dose of the beauty that is Darnell and laugh so hard you burn "tons of" calories, read this post. Nuff said.
Here's my card for the still-happy-couple. Hoping the love potion keeps right on flowing...
First, the card. Inspired by this - but too late for the challenge. It didn't turn out like it was in my head. Hate when that happens. Guess I was dreaming I had Jocelyn O.'s digi stamping skills and all I really had was this free clip art and MS Word. And then the issue of grounding - Let the bottles float in the air? Create the illusion of a table? Mask the bottles or not since they are see-thru? Or just add an embossed strip and call it a day? Ugh. But my buddies, the alcohol inks on acetate, didn't let me down!
Joining the fun at:
CASology - Week 28 where the cue is "Drink"
Keep it Simple - #6 Dry Embossing
Simon Says Stamp - where the challenge is to Paper Piece. I acetate-pieced. Hope that counts.
Now for the non-card stuff. You know MArdythSKerade, queen of stark-and-square CAS? She rigged up a fun surprise for Darnell and the rest of us too actually. Share an anniversary card and your own wedding photo. So here's mine. Come September it'll be 20 years...
Uber belated note of thanks to Clear and Simple stamps: Won some at Moxie Fab and pulled them out to ground this card (as well as create those wafting hearts) which will be for DH. No, he doesn't look here. Least I don't think so!
Glad you looked.
