Anniversary Card

 
My parents will be celebrating their 62nd! Anniversary this weekend. Here's a card I made and have already given them, using another sweet Maggie!

I inked up Tilda with Vintage Roses for the very first time, since my Mom really loves Magnolias too and I used my Dad's favorite colour, teal to colour her in. I LOVE this TPC Studio Ancestral Teal Brocade paper and used matching Bazzil cardstock for three mats which were layered and popped up on foam dimensionals. I used Chalk Ink to finish off the edges of the papers, including the scallop-cut and embossed image using my Spellbinders die.

Wild Orchid Crafts roses were left neutral, and so I matched Tilda's roses to those too. I only had a silver heart charm, so I spray painted it gold and tied it to some sheer ribbon.

Copic colours used:

Tilda's skin: E0000, E000, E00
Tilda's hair: Y11, Y28
Ribbon: Y28
Dress, socks and headband: BG000, BG45, BG49
Roses: W1, W3, G24, G28

I really love the simple yet elegant way this turned out. They did too!
