An Anniversary to Celebrate.

Happy Anniversary to The Doughtys!
   My mom asked me to make an anniversary card for her sister, Carol and her husband, Harry. I loved the Stampin Up stamp set : Baroque Motif. The swirls seem so elegant. I added pearls from Want 2scrap that almost matched the swirls that I stamped.  A few more gems and pearls were added to give just "a touch" more bling.
   I stamped the swirls with Stampin Up's Going Gray ink. The scalloped edge is from a Martha Stewart border punch. The flowers I picked up at Tate's in Bath. The paper I purchased at JoAnn's Fabric on one of my excursions there.
   On the enveloped I stamped the Baroque Motif swirls in Going Gray and added blue stickles. I really like how it all came out. My mom loved it, too. I have to get going and make my anniversary card to them.  Check back to see what I came up for them.
