Happy Anniversary Card

"Is it yet another survival of jungle instinct, this hiding away from prying eyes at important times?  Or merely a gesture of independence, a challenge to man and his stupid ways?"

Hi, Friends......

I'm back with another Sketch with a Twist from MFP.  This time the twist was to make an Anniversary card.  I knew exactly which stamp I wanted to use.  I absolutely adore this pair of kitties cuddling under the stars.  I have used it for anniversary cards before, but it has been a long while and this sketch was perfect for it. 

The Happy Anniversary stamp has a flower below the script, but I masked it out for this card.  I heat embossed both stamped portions.  

The cardstock is DCWV and Coredinations.  The polka dot cardstock is glittery, although you can't tell from the photograph.  It's from DCWV Twinkle Glints.  






Here's the sketch I used.  Thanks Mark's Finest Papers for all the great challenges you give us!!  They are so much fun.

Wow!  This was sure a short post.  But I think I covered pretty much everything.  Thanks for visiting and leaving your wonderful comments!!!

Very nice card for an anniversary. Well done on your win with FOSTV last week. I agree that hummingbird set is lovely.

Thank you, Vickie! Seeing as I have 20 cats, you would think I would make more cat cards. I do have quite a collection of kitty stamps, but I always seem to reach for my others. Not really sure why.... lol. Thanks for your visit and your sweet comment!

Thanks so much, Janine! I am really excited to be winning some of MFP's stamps, although since it is a random drawing I can't take any real credit for it....only that I participated! :) Still, a random winner is a winner and I cannot wait for the stamps to get here!! Thank you for stopping by and leaving your nice comment!!
