Serendipity Stamps "Floral Frame"





Hi peeps!! I was asked by a friend to make a Golden Wedding Anniversary card and this what I came up with. The DP came from Hobby Lobby and isn't it just beautiful? I stamped the Floral Frame from Serendipity Stamps in Versamark and then used Gold Embossing Powder, which I heat embossed. The rings came from my DD's stash. The Gold ribbon beneath the frame is from my own stash. I punched the butterfly out of the same DP and put a gold glitter dot in the middle.

I have been busy cleaning one room at a time at my house. The patio was done this morning...I had a friend pressure wash the beautiful slate floor and now it looks so great I just wish I could stay out there and swing and sing...LOL...yes, I really do that and the acoustics out there makes me sound like a rock star...I sure hope the neighbors can't hear me though :)

Hope all of you are doing well! Thanks for all of your sweet wishes and making me feel great about posting again. The comments I receive are from some of the best in this crazy, but fun craft!!!
