Time Well Spent Anniversary

My in-laws anniversary was on New Year's Day, so this is the card I made for them. I got the idea for the card from one on Nancy Riley's blog, iStamp. It was a rak she received from Lorri Heiling. I really liked the way Lorri used the white gel pen to outline her flowers, so I decided to duplicate that idea with the heart from Time Well Spent.

I stamped the heart in Basic Black on four 1 3/4" squares of Purely Pomegranate. I then colored the flower with the white gel pen and made a flower center with my Basic Black marker. Each of the squares were then mounted on 1 7/8" squares of Whisper White. The background piece is Basic Black cardstock (I don't remember the exact dimensions) that I stamped with the smallest flower from Time Well Spent in Whisper White. I added a piece of Black Gingham ribbon to the bottom and adhered it all to a Purely Pomegranate card base. Happy Anniversary from Hugs & Wishes was added at the bottom in Basic Black.

Stamps: Time Well Spent, Hugs & Wishes
Cardstock: Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black, Whisper White
Other: Black Gingham Ribbon
