Happy Anniversary

It's Saturday and that means a new super awesome sketch from The Sweet Stop!  
This weeks' sketch has a twist....
~ Think Spring ~

I've used Lili of the Valley, Love Grows as an anniversary card for my sister and her husband.  They celebrated 17 years together this Valentine's Day.

Not having the proper pink/rose colored felt I need to match my DP, I pulled out my Copic R02 marker and colored a square of white felt before using the rolled rose die.  I've not been thrilled with my results using this die with paper (I can't make it look right - operator error again) but I LOVED using the felt!!  Oh, and when you're coloring felt with your Copic's you might want to pat it dry with a scrap piece of paper.  Some ink droplets form and don't soak into the felt completely.

Come take a peek at The Sweet Stop blog and see the beautiful samples the Sugar Babies have made to inspire you.  I hope you'll play along with us too!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wendy!!! I could just stare at your colouring forever! It's amazing! LOVE the idea of colouring felt!!! BRILLIANT!

I love youre ven paper piercing - so effective with the stitching. The rose is brilliant with the felt & I love the marbled effect you achieved on that. The way you've used several different colours of green picked out from the patterned paper for the swirls & the leaves is thoroughly effective but subtle. Lovely idea for an anniversary card too.
