Anniversary Card

A guy I work with wanted me to make an anniversary card for him, so of course, I did. :) He said she liked pink, so that was my starting point. But I needed more than "pink". I knew she liked to read, so I was thinking about doing a bookmark as part of the card. I also knew I wanted to use my French Script background stamp, but that was pretty much all I had in my head. So, where did I turn? Why, SCS, of course!!! I went to the gallery, and just searched for "anniversary". I ran across myhobbyisstamping's card (found here), and that was the one!! I used her card for inspiration and made my own modifications. I used Regal Rose as my card base. I stamped my French Script in VersaMark and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then, I took confetti white CS and stamped the love image from the 2006 SAB set Gently Falling in Regal Rose. Then, I took my Regal Rose marker and the Color Spritzer Tool (AKA "The Puffer Tool") to make the splatter pattern on another piece of confetti white CS. Then, I stamped "forever" from the Wonderful Words set in Night of Navy on the splattered confetti CS. I cut a small piece of Night of Navy CS, mounted the love-stamped confetti piece of CS, ripped off the bottom, and tied a piece of navy narrow organdy ribbon around it. I mounted all the pieces, leaving the larger piece of confetti white a pocket. I moved to the inside where I stamped French Script again in VersaMark on both sides of the inside. I stamped the verse from Cheery Chat in Regal Rose on confetti white, mounted it on Night of Navy, and adhered to the card. Then, I stamped Happy Anniversary in Night of Navy on the card. Lastly, I made the bookmark. I used the chipboard from the back of the 12x12 paper and mounted Loves Me double-sided CS from the Winter Mini. The recipient's name is "Billie", so I stamped that with Headline Alphabet and Rough Edges Alphabet. I used white and pink narrow organdy for the top adhered with a white heart-shaped eyelet.
