You are welcome to combine with challenges from other blogs and sites; however you must create a different project for each of our four challenges. Thanks for your understanding.

I made an anniversary card using the "Moonlight" Halloween paper pack to show a friend it's versatility. I used the top row across for my bingo combination: pearls, ribbon, and a flower.

I heat embossed the die cut heart with it's matching stamp (Cricut Artiste p. 51 Accent 2 shift). The flower was also cut on the Artiste, p. 54 Accent 3 shift, 1", 1.25," and 1.5" inked with smoky plum and stacked, with mocha pearls for the center. I tied two strips of black tulle ribbon in the center with 3/8" black satin ribbon. The Colonial White mat for the heart is dry embossed and inked with Petal. The heart was inked with Petal and Chocolate inks

The inside is decorated with two strips of the striped paper from the end that includes a "zip strip" with the smoky plum color and swirly design. Two different older CTMH stamps were used for the sentiment inside.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash Weekly - Challenge #72 Tic Tac Toe: center row across - black, ribbon, flower
(I used 2 really old stamp sets for the inside sentiment.)
Oozak Challenge #7 - die cuts
Simon Says Stamp - Dies and/or punches
Stars and Stamps/Operation Write Home - Anniversary/Love
