Anniversary Card

OK, I'm back from what was probably our last mini-vacation for this year. We left on Sunday and got home late Wednesday. I was too tired yesterday to work on much, so I didn't get anything posted here. Now time to get back to regular posting again!

I needed a card for my Parents' 36th anniversary, so I sat down to work on it. I was COMPLETELY UNINSPIRED! Nothing I had in my head was working.

First I came up with this one:

Can we say "Not Happy"? Because that's how I feel about this one. I really wanted to use my new Rhonna Farrer stamps that I won from Heidi. But I'm just not liking the way this came out. I embossed them with silver ep to match the silver wording on the ribbon. Then I added a couple eyelets. I don't hate it, I'm just not thrilled with it.

So, I tried again. This time in a totally different direction, except for the B&W. And this is what I came up with:

I am much happier with this one. I used SU! Happy Harmony set and my Cuttlebug. (Have I mentioned how much I'm lovin' this thing?) I used clear ep on the image and the sentiment, and added a piece of satin ribbon.

Funny thing - my kids were sitting at the table when I was working on these. I asked CJ (13) which one he liked better, and he said, "The one on the right" (which was the second card). Then I asked Ruthi (2.5). She looked at them and said, "The yite one." (yite = white) Then later on I asked hubby which one he liked better, and he agreed - the white one! So obviously, it wasn't just me who wasn't feelin' the first one. I just thought it was interesting that my family agreed!

So obviously, the white one is they one they received!
