Happy Anniversary Card, a.k.a "My first attempt at these challenge things"

Here we go, my first attempt at these challenges that I keep reading about!

This card was designed and created for three separate challenges:
The background of the card is silver embossing powder on black card stock. The "cameo" couple was cut using my Silhouette Cameo. I searched the internet for a public domain image of the restroom icons, then used Silhouette Studio's trace feature to turn the icons into shapes. I pushed the two shapes together so the man and woman look like they're holding hands. The sentiment was drawn with the Silhouette Cameo using the silver sketch pen. A heart punch and dashed line finish things off nicely.

Happy Anniversary Card

I think my first attempt at the challenges was a success. If nothing else the deadlines caused me to carve out some specific time to craft, which is always a good thing. Hopefully there will be many more challenge entries in my future!


  1. Fun card! The metallic embossed background is gorgeous and I love the banner! Great design and colors! Thanks for joining us at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog!


  2. This is a first attempt? Your card is awesome! I love the embossing and the contemporary "potty people" were a great choice. I'm so glad that you chose The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge to be your first ever. You rocked this! Thanks for joining us. ~Michelle
