Floral Embossed Anniversary

Hi Again 

Today is a card with a stamp that has lived here a while but could not decide why I bought it.  Ever do that one?   

Anyways, dug it out and did not like the finished product whole so cut it down and did a layered Anniversary card in the A2 even though the stamp will do a 5 x 7.

This was embossed, then sponged in the flowers and leaves randomly with three colours of ink.  Next to decide what to do as did not like it plain so made a bow then cut out the Happy Anniversary out of an opal stock but it did not show so played about and sponged it as well.  

The inside will have a silver stock and text paper with a printed verse (have so many on here and that is why you never see an inside stamped unless required.)  And the die cut on the left inside sponged again. 

Here you have it. (The "H" is glued down properly now. )

Stock :  - Old pearlized stock ??
Embossing Powder:    Ranger Silver Pearl
Inks:  Tim Holtz -  Antique Linen, Shabby Shutters and Spun Sugar
Stamp:  Penny Black  - "Glory of Modesty"
Ribbon:   Elan

Thanks for stopping by.
