FabFri28, FMS 107

Good morning to you all!  I managed to squeeze some card making in on Saturday, and I decided to play along with a nice simple sketch at Freshly Made Sketches using the FUN colour combo at Fab Friday!  Be sure to check out both sites... they've always got great challenges going!

I wanted to make a card for my aunt and uncle who just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary!  I decided to make them one to go along with this gorgeous autumn season.  Now, I realize you don't exactly see Rich Razzleberry leaves laying around on the ground.... but you know... we have a couple trees in our backyard, and those leaves are so vibrantly red, they LOOK HOT PINK!  Seriously!  So, you see... I can have Rich Razzleberry leaves if I like!  And I like!

Here's my card!  It turned out great if I do say so myself!  And I got a "wow" from my husband who usually says they look good... when he hasn't even looked!

You may be wondering where my Basic Black is... I just couldn't seem to get it in there without making this card look Halloween-ish... so I stamped my sentiment in it for an easy fix!  For the tiny Tangerine Tango scallop, I cut a scalloped ribbon in half and peeked it out from behind my natural cotton, on which I frayed the edges. (love doing that!)  I loved this sketch too... I'll definitely be using it in the future as well!  

Leave me a comment letting me know what you think about my card!  I love hearing from you!  Seeyou later.

Lovely anniversary card! You did a fantastic job lining up the stamps with the die cuts…I'm not so good at that! And trimming the scallop ribbon is a cute idea! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
