Happy Anniversary

Happy Monday Peeps, I have been busy making cards for a large order I received from a very sweet customer and she requested a few Anniversary cards. Generally she tells me what she would like on the cards she orders or she request one or more of my cards I have posted here on my blog with a certain sentiment to fit her needs. But this time on a few of the cards she said "surprise me", love that!!

This is just one of the surprise me cards she asked for. I already had the flowers done from another project that I ended up using another image with so I just had to work in the sentiment, which comes form the retired 
Stampin Up set called Something to Celebrate. It is one long sentiment so I used my stamp a ma jig to line it up like it appears on my card.

I kinda just winged it with this layout, I wanted to use this pretty piece of DSP from the Twitterpatted paper pack and then I layered it up a bit and of course I had to add a piece of card stock that I embossed with the square lattice EF, that has to be my all time favorite embossing folder. I use it on almost everything i make and I have to force myself sometimes to use some different ones so I know I am obsessed with it....:)

I used some pearl swirls around the focal piece and added some whisper white satin ribbon and tied a nice bow.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and
