I decided to try a triple challenge to make my parents' anniversary card this year. It took a LOT of trial and error, but I'm fairly happy with the finished product. I always find it extra challenging to try to appeal to a male *and* female with the same card!
I didn't have all the inks for CC647, so I substituted with the closest berry and green from my own stash.
For FS548, I was inspired by her recent upload (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2815571 ) of a trio of new in-color cards using label stamps and coordinating patterned panels on the lower portion of the card. I used leaves from "With Gratitude" to recreate a patterned panel for this card based from that. :)
I'll upload the inside of the card as well in my gallery. :)
Thanks so much for looking, and thanks to the hostesses of this week's great challenges!

Your card is lovely, nicely done! You did a great job in combining the male/female details here, I'm sure your parents will feel the love and love your card! I can't believe you did a "triple challenge," too; awesome!!
Thank you so much for the honor of perusing my own gallery for inspiration (and then to create)! It has been such a fun week and experience for me!

Fabulous take on the sketch and the other challenges. Beautifully inspired. Love the wood-grain embossed background. The repeated stamping is terrific. Love the little heart. Awesome sentiment. Fantastic card for your parent's anniversary. It is difficult to do a female/male combo card. You did great!
