Here are my Splitcoaststamper Challenges for this week. I used SC237, CC227 and WRAK image. The image is by Rachelle Ann Miller call Peek A Bunny and was a Wish image I received from amykuc (thanks Amy!) The cardstock is Whisper White, Basic Black, Almost Amethyst and Barely Bannana - all from Stampin' Up! I used Copic markers to color in the images, Cutterbug Swirl embossing folder, SU brads, Prima flowers and vintage buttons from my stash.
It was nice to have a challenge to help with the sketch or layout and then the colors. I also know that I wanted to use my most recent RAK. I tragically lost my best friend and 4 legged child last week and have not had any mojo or desire to create, so the challenges really helped me to at least get back into the studio.
Have a blessed day and thank you for looking.

Anniversary Cards

Stamp sets: SU's Elegant Antique background & JustRite Stampers Harmony sets
Cardstock: SU Metallic Gold & Silver and Whisper White
Ink/Emboss Powder: Encore Metallic with SU gold & silver emboss powder
Ribbon: SU gold & silver organdy with metalic cording
Other: Nesties circle & scallop circle & pop dots.

Had the embossed backgrounds sitting around forever from another project and needed a 50th Wedding Anniversary card quick. I had just gotten the JustRite stamps and wanted to play around with them so I came up with the simple yet elegant card. I needed a 15th wedding anniversary card for DH and decided to use the silver background for it. We celebrate our anniversary on the 10th.
Thanks for looking.
