Happy Anniversary

It has been sometime since I was down in my Scrap Room. I have been sick since January 1st and have spent many days in bed not even seeing the light of day. I started with a really bad throat infection which then spread to my chest. Just as I got over that I was hit with the nasty flu bug that is going around. I don't think I have slept so much in the last few years as I did in the past couple of weeks. I was really loosing my mojo so I decided to hit the blog world to find some things to inspire me. With some inspiration and a new episode of "Emily Owens M.D" playing I hit my room and spent the next three hours playing. This was the first card I produced. My inspiration came from a sketch over at The Sweet Shop. However I didn't follow the sketch exactly and I miss the spin part of adding a snowman, but it was my inspiration!

The heart is actully made by punching a heart from cardstock a coating it in several layers of gold embossing powder. While the embosing powder was still warm I pressed the "Love" stamp from Pennant Parade into the embossing powder.

I am not a girl for leaving the backgrounds so plain but I was inspired by all the cards that I have seen lately where they have just kept thing simple with plain white backgrounds. Thought I would give it a whirl.

Supplies used for this card:
* items are from Stampin' Up
Pennant Parade Stamp Set *
Heart Punch
Very Vanilla Cardstock *
Soft Seude Ink *
Crumb Cake Ink *
Gold Embossing Powder *
Ribbon from my Stash
