I am still building my stash of Anniversary cards...so took advantage of todays Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers to make another one.

I also used the same color combo as yesterday which is from Stamp TV's Color Challenge this week: Brown, Ivory and Yellow. I really like these colors together.

I am a subscriber to Michelle Zindorf's blog and as soon as I saw her use the Inspired By Nature stamp set from Stampin Up and the Horizontal Slot punch to make cattails I knew I had to try it. Of course, Michelle's card is stunning....but I was pleased with how mine turned out. Thanks Michelle for the inspiration!! My white gel pen decided to dry up on my ...so I was unable to highlight my cattails as I intended....sigh...... HERE is the link to Michelle's fabulous tutorial!!

Card Supplies:

Stamps: SU Inspired By Nature; CDS sentiment
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Au Choclate DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Blush Blossom
Accessories: SU Horizontal Slot Punch, Glue, MS Butterfly Punch, SU Wide Striped Ribbon, Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder
