Anniversary wishes

Hi all! I actually decided to play along in the weekly sketch challenge over at SCS.  It's been a long time since I've done so and I like that this weeks sketch could be used in so many different ways.

I decided to go pretty clean and simple, but you can really dress this sketch up! Sorry for the dark picture.

Vintage cream cardstock used throughout, with a little bit of shiny gold thrown in for some layers and definition.

The textile embossing folder was used to emboss the back ground layer - I have to say I think that folder and the Swiss dots are my all time favorite embossing folders. I did pop up that layer using foam tape.

Anniversary wishes sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink. Finally, I unearthed some gold cording to use to tie the bow. Not sure if I like it or not. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty card, Laurie. Love the gold and white together, and the bow is just perfect, as that spot would need a little something! Great job!
