Happy Anniversary Distressed Look

Happy Anniversary to Kurt and Julie.  Married for 9 years on the 20th of this month.  My friend Julie is very krafty, in the nice sense of that word of course.  I wanted to make a special card for them.  Here it is:

Here is my attempt at the distressed look posted on Andrea Walfords site here:  http://andreawalford.com/?p=697 .  I have to give credit where credit is due so you will notice mine is quite similar to Sophie’s card and tutorial. 

Stampin Up Sets Used:  Toile BG, Baroque Motifs

Micheal’s:  Happy Anniversary Stamp

Colors Used:  bashful blue, baja breeze, pacific point, creamy caramel, chocolate chip, old olive, riding hood red

ACCESSORIES:  Riding hood red tafetta ribbon, jumbo eyelets, slot punch, ticket corner punch, sponges, scallop edge punch, 1/16 hole punch, acetate for masking, two way glue, 

I am not sure this picture does this card justice as it is hard to see the old olive BGstamping.  But I am quite happy with how it turned out and hope that our friends Julie and Kurt will like it too. 

What do you think?

Sorry I have been so delinquent with my blog but I am adjusting to my new job and have been quite tired.  I am now trained and will be working part time which was exactly what I was looking for in a job.  Thanks for being patient and checking back.  I have another card to get working on for a good friend and fellow stamper Kathie, who has recently left for Florida.  I wanted to have it sent to her before she got there but no such luck.

Check back tomorrow to see that one.
