Happy Anniversary

Don't look now, but I made a card! With my parents' anniversary fast approaching, and all sorts of wonderful miscellany on my desk from Scraptastic's When Skies Are Grey kit, it was a no-brainer.

A variety of fun elements are casually layered beneath and on top of a doily from the kit. 


 Watercolor crayons and a water brush were used to mix a coordinating shade of blue paint. Liberally washed with this color, the Heidi Swapp Color Magic Resist tag picked up the blue nicely, leaving a white quatrefoil outline.

I can't remember the last time I gave a handmade card; hope they like it!
