Better Late than Never, right?

Yesterday was hubby's parents 53rd wedding anniversary! Of course I had to make a card...

I sent it off yesterday (I know late), because last week was so insanely busy for me that I barely had time to go to the bathroom - YIKES!!!

So yes, it will be a little bit late (they live about an hour away), but at least they'll know we were thinking of them (and hubby did call them on Sunday).

The stamp set is retired (Happy Harmony), but I haven't let it go yet. I'm thinking though, that will all the goodness coming up in the summer mini and the goodness in the IB&C which is due out July 1st, that I will have to part with it to make some room!!!

Unfortunately, the photo was hastily taken and despite some serious messing around in Photoshop is not my best work.

At any rate, I used More Mustard, Really Rust and Garden Green to ink up the rubber on the main image and then spritzed it with water to give it sort of a water colour effect. The sentiment was stamped in Really Rust.

The DSP that I used is from the Patterns Pack III which is a level 1 Hostess Benefit in the current IB&C and the card base is Really Rust.

What do you think?

STAMPS: Happy Harmony
INK: Garden Green, More Mustard, Really Rust
PAPERS: Very Vanilla and Really Rust Cardstock; Really Rust DSP
ACCESSORIES: Markers and Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stampin'!
