Happy Anniversary!

I haven't pulled out Damask in FOREVER so I thought it would be fun to dust it off!  A customer needed an "elegant" anniversary card and this is what I came up with....

My crafty blog friend, Dana had a fabulous tutorial on her blog using a rose that I LOVE to make!  In the past I have used the regular Marvy flower punches to make this flower but she used the PTI Beautiful Blooms die and I thought it gave the flower a whole new look!  She has an amazing tutorial HERE that shows you how to make these fun flowers!  Super easy!  If you look closely on mine you can see a little pearl in the center! 

Well, I hope your weekend was fantastic!  My little one starts 1st grade tomorrow so I am sure we will be out playing like crazy today!  Gotta get that last trip to the pool in!

Have a great week!
