Wedding/anniversary card

Good Day

We all have something sometimes that just trigger inspiration. Today, I want to share one project with two inspirations. Firstly the colour combo at Dynamic duos and the sketch from Sketchbook Saturday are two challenges that triggered this project and then all the anniversary challenges. I've taken a Irish blessing as sentiment and can either be used on a wedding or as anniversary. For a change I've dig out some clear stamps and gave it some ink with some clear embossing on the left. I've added some black, which I embossed with a piano motif. On the right I used the faux embossing method, which is actually very easy. You use the cut out pieces from the die cut and glued it to the surface. I used my butterfly die cut from Spellbinder. The butterfly is from Marianne's design and I used Fiskar tear edger for the shape.

Challenges I'm joining:
Dynamic Duos #62 - Coral Orange and basic black
One Stop Craft Challenge #235 - Make your own background
Glitter 'n Sparkle #42 - Weddings/Anniversaries
"ABC" Challenges ABC37 - Double embossing
