Papercraft Star Challenge #48

     It's a photo inspiration challenge this week at Papercraft Star with a theme of wedding or anniversary.  White and soft yellow--very pretty combination.  For my card I started with a yellow base and added a mat of white that I embossed with swiss dots.  I did some machine stitching in yellow around the edge of the mat piece.  The flower was a white Prima that I painted with Creative Inspirations paint.  It has such a beautiful shimmer to it.  I inked the edges of the doily heart with some yellow chalk and added a yellow ribbon around the bottom of the card.
     For the month of June we are working with some stamps from our wonderful team mate Cecilia, who has recently started her own stamp company, Tradefish Designs.

     I'm using one of the sentiment stamps from the Missing You stamp set.  It stamped like a dream, clear and crisp!  I've popped in on top of a Nestabilites tag die cut and added some white brads.
       I went for the anniversary theme since I have anniversary on the brain.  LOL  Hubby and I celebrated 25 years in December and we are about to embark on a two week vacation for just the "You + Me = We" two of us.  Can't wait!
     Our link up will be open through 9:00 p.m. EST on Sunday for this challenge so let's see what you can come up with.
     Happy crafting!
