Aly's Sunday Challenge

For the next couple of weeks Aly's Sunday challenge is being sponsored by Shannon's Sentiments for their spring challenge. Here is my card for the challenge:

I used the flower from Shannon's Sentiments Garden time set. The rhinestones (around the center of the flower and at both corners of the card) were put on by my new fun toy by Imaginisce, the I-Rock. I used ink pads and makeup sponges to color in the flower. Ink by Stampin' Up, Stamp It, Memento and Ranger. all other stamps be SEI and the green ink is by CTMH. I added a little distressing action on the sides and on the inside I called it an anniversary card to be sent out tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to join in on Aly's Sunday spring challenge. You until April the 2nd at midnight to get your card or project posted.
