Touch of Nature Anniversary

I made this card for my husband for our anniversary today. We have been married 21 years, which is remarkable since that is also my age. Allison's suggestive Sunday challenge this week is flowers, so this card works for that.

The stamp set I used is called Touch of Nature from Stampin' Up. I colored all the images with water color pencils and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.

The flower and three branches were cut out. The flower is raised using pop dots. I sponged all the layers using Certainly Celery and/or Chocolate Chip ink. The papers I used are Wild Wasabi, Close to Cocoa, Basic Black and Whisper White. I added three imitation dew drops from Michaels.

I want to say thanks to everyone that leaves comments for me. I so appreciate them. Have a great weekend!
