Happy Anniversary

Isn't Blackberry Bliss a wonderfully rich colour?  It just takes my breath away.  And when you add gold, well!  It's downright royal!  No wonder the challenge over at Stampin' Royalty includes those colours this week.

I decided to make an anniversary card with my base in Naturals White.  Then I added a narrow layer of Blackberry Bliss and finally a stamped layer of Whisper White.  My stamping was done using the lovely Bloom With Hope Hostess stamp set.  The large "Gerber" daisy just lent itself beautifully to the bright colours.  I wanted to heat emboss golden leaves behind the daisies.  And so I masked the top daisies and stamped the leaves from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set across them.  I also heat embossed the centres of the daisies in gold.  

For the girdle I attached a strip of Gold Foil and then used the Confetti Stars Punch along a piece of Blackberry Bliss before cutting that to the same width.  I love how the gold shines through those star shapes.  

Beside the bottom daisy I stamped Happy Anniversary using the Memorable Moments stamp set and Blackberry Bliss ink.  To finish off, I stamped the champagne glasses from the Making Spirits Bright set and heat embossed the liquid inside using Gold Embossing powder.  I added some more gold "bubbles" to the Whisper White just for fun.
