Today is my husband's and my 21st Anniversary. This is the card I made for him today. I hope he likes it.

It also fits today's Ways to Use it Challenge over at Splitcoast...'Revved up for Red' use the colour red on our card.

I was inspired by Judy aka StampingQueenJAR's CARD.

I took Crystal Effects and Red Glitter and mixed them together...I brushed them onto my chipboard heart with a foam paintbrush. The heart had already been sponged in Riding Hood Red.

I was going for a shabby chic there is alot of sponging of Close To Cocoa and Riding Hood Red on the edges of everything.

I used several layers of sheer brown ribbon on my tag and heated the ends with my heat gun to achieve the crinkled look. My Bow Easy was used to create the double sheer bow with the key and heart charms.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: SU ~ French Flair, So Many Sayings, Wonderful Words
Paper: Bella Rose DSP, Chocolate Chip, Kraft
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Close To Cocoa
Accessories: Build A Brad & Daisy Die, Crystal Effects, Red Glitter, Foam Paint Brush, Bow Easy, Square Nestabilities, Chipboard heart & tag, Sheer Brown Ribbon, heat gun, Key & Heartlock charms, Sponge Daubers

Thanks for looking today.

Happy Anniversary Andrew......Love ya!
