Love & Laughter Anniversary

Happy Saturday! I am so glad for the weekend, even tho I am spending most of the day cleaning my poor neglected house. It has been such a busy week with VBS every day and getting ready to start school on Monday. I'm afraid I haven't had much time for blogging or internet time. I am really looking forward to getting back into our routine.

This card I made for a special couple. I woke up one morning totally inspired by Melon Berry and Dark Chocolate. I guess I must have been dreaming about it:). I started with Dark Chocolate cardstock as my base and stamped the large damask stamp from Damask Designs in Versamark. I then matted a strip of Melon Berry Green Tea Leaves paper to Spring Moss cardstock and adhered it to the left side of my card. I stamped the tree from Love & Laughter and the sentiment from Damask Designs onto Melon Berry cardstock in Burnt Umber ink making sure to leave enough room to tie my Spring Moss satin ribbon. I cut both the image and the mat with rectangle nestibilities. I tied the Spring Moss ribbon around the cardstock and matted it to Spring Moss cardstock. I then adhered the image to my base with foam tape.
On the inside, I stamped the same tree image in Versamark onto Melon Berry cardstock and the sentiment from the set is stamped in Burnt Umber. I added a strip of the same Melon Berry Green Tea Leaves paper that I used on the front and used a ruler and a brown pen to draw lines. I love how simple this card is and the way these colors work together.

It is almost time for KLM Design sneak peeks. I should be back on Tuesday for the first one. They are looking for a new design team, if you're interested be sure to apply. The details can be found here. They are a really great company to work for.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day!
