Anniversary Card

Here is a card I made for some friends for a 50th Wedding anniversary. Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder was used on the background piece. Cardstock colors are Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler. The punched piece that says "Happy Anniversary" is a new punch found the in the holiday mini catalog...I'll be passing those out at classes this week if you haven't already received one in the mail. This mini catalog is the best one yet, my wish list is very long. This mini includes Fabric!, new dies with a long jumbo ric rac as my absolute favorite, awesome holiday sets, gorgeous fall designer paper and so much more...you just need to get your hands on a copy. Let me know if you need a holiday mini catalog or want to place an order after Sept. 1 for any of these items.
Oh, back to the card. The rhinestone embellishments are in the new Idea Book & Catalog on pg. 188 and they come in pearls too. They are self adhesive and really add some "bling" to your cards.

My inspiration for this card was a card done by Rochelle Gould. Just click her name to go to her blog. I just realized that Rochelle is also an Artisan Award Finalist for this year. Here's the complete list of the runners up to the Artisan Award for this year. Stampin' Up! picks the top 10 winners and announces that back in June...then at convention they announce the finalists so we are happy if we see our names on that list. So we are the ones that came really close to winning...but didn't :-(. I'm sure it was a 21 way tie for 11th place! LOL

Wow, three Jennifer's on the list! :-)
Congrats to all my fellow demo finalists. This is my second year of being a finalist and I know Jan Tinklenberg is also a repeat finalist. Might just have to try again next year but will have to wait and see if I have the time, $ and inspiration. My contest entries were blog post back in June, Juen 6-16.
Have a great day, Jennifer

Jennifer, your card is so elegant and pretty. Congrats on being an AA Finalist!

I am the Jennifer Diercks from the list, but I'm no longer a Stampin' Up! Demo. I stepped down for personal reasons Mid-July. Thanks so much for contacting me. It was my 2nd year as a finalist. I included my blog in the link like Cindy.
