Leaves for an Anniversary Card

I missed the last W&W Rerun challenge & I was determined to get an entry made in time for Rerun No 30.  I'm always drawn to leaf images, but I don't have Framed with Evelyn T Designs.  Lots of inspiration from the DT & Kate's card really caught my eye.  I used 2 leaf images from In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals with VersaMagic Oasis Green & Sage--love them together! 
I made smaller gold clusters with Delicata Golden Glitz.  Funny thing--the tiny dot went flying as I wiped it clean & I couldn't find it anywhere.  Decided not to panic as I have several stamp sets that include a variety of dots.  Would you believe, the next morning there it was on the floor next to my chair!  I stamped the little word (old Flourishes set) in Oasis Green & heat embossed on a vellum strip.  It was attached to the panel which I'd die cut with Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle.  W&W Happy die cut was stacked 3 high & the top one was sponged with the Golden Glitz.  I left off any embellishments as I didn't want it to be at all girly for the couple we sent it to.  Gotta say--I thoroughly enjoyed making this card & may case myself!  Roses are in full bloom, so gotta do some work outside today.  Love the flowers, but not the upkeep--haha!  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies, SSS Wednesday & Stamping Sensations.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  19. I love that you made your background and those colors are beautiful together. The touch of gold on the Happy pulls it altogether. Those clear stamps stick to everything on my desk and I have found them in strange places before. I once found a small one stuck to the button on my shirt when I took it off!

  22. So pretty Greta. Botanical themes are always in fashion for me. The bold word works brilliantly with your theme. Had to smile about your tiny dot going rouge and leaving the scene of the action. I have the same problem with small elements.
