Anniversary Card & Weekly Deals

Yesterday was our anniversary. Yep...been married 33 years to the love of my life. He is amazing and completely supports my addiction to rubber stamps and all things artsy. With him in mind, I came up with this simple card. I think the neutral colors give it a more masculine feel. I saw a card on Pinterest that totally inspired this piece. 

I colored the rhinestones with Crumb Cake Blendabilities! I think the Blendabilities are one of the most versatile products Stampin' Up! came up with this past year. You can customize so many of your embellishments and other non-porous surfaces, not to mention coloring your stamped images with them. I achieved the splatter look with just one stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge. After initially stamping the image with either Crumb Cake or Smoky Slate ink, I stamped it a few more times without re-inking it.  

The sentiment is from that cool set of stamps called Good Greetings that Stampin' Up! offered free with a $300 or more purchase this past October. The rest of the product list is here:
