CTD576 and TSOT440 John's Anniversary

Happy Saturday, everyone!  We are finally supposed to get some snow today---just in time for my Hostess party tomorrow!  The weatherman promises it is all going to get washed away by tomorrow!  We'll see!  

I'm sharing the card I made for John for our anniversary; it uses the Try Stampin On Tuesday sketch as well as the Color Throwdown colors:

I used the lighthouse image from Sailing Home for the focal point, and since there is a bit of ocean splash at the bottom, I guess it qualifies for the "wet" part of the challenge too:

I began with a large stitched circle of Naturals White cardstock.  On it, I stamped the lighthouse in Night of Navy and birds in Pretty Peacock, then diecut the lighthouse out and offset it against the cut opening; I added some Denim ribbon behind so that it would peek through the opening:

I added a background of Pretty Peacock DSP and mounted it on a Honey Nut card base (Papertrey).  I also diecut a sentiment with the Stitched Nested Labels dies, adding a Honey Nut mat as well.  The inside was stamped with a Technique Tuesday sentiment with some other words from Paper Studio added in:

He loved it!  Thanks for popping in today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Let Fe this LeAnne! The honey colour adds beautiful warmth to those blues and the ribbon peek through is really fine and a nice way to incorporate it on a masculine card without being girly. Glad it was well received!

Great anniversary card, LeAnne! You met both the sketch and theme challenge over here at Try Stampin' on Tuesday! Clever idea to do the die-cut and offset it... I hadn't seen that technique before. Thank you for sharing your clever talents with us at TSOT!!! -Donna
