Remarkable Anniversary ~ CCMC512, WWC172, ATSM294

Hello stampers!  This is Create with Connie and Mary's last challenge before we switch over to the new catalog!  I had to use another flower from the retiring set {Remarkable You} and once again I did the no line watercolor technique.  I love, love, love this!  I also wanted to use the fabulous Foil Frenzy DSP.  I have a bunch of it left and when it comes time for things like this to be retired I'm always kicking myself for not using them up!  I find myself saying I should have used this stamp more, or I should have used more of this paper!  Ugh, every darn year!  I guess it's not like I can never use them again but there's so much fun new stuff coming!!!! 
This is our sketch for the week:
I also joining my card up with Watercooler Wednesday 172 - anything goes, and Addicted to Stamps and More 294 - Clean and Simple.

So, along with the couple retiring items, this card also showcases some new as well!  The Pearlized Doily behind the flower is a wonderful new accessory added this year, and the sentiment banner as well as the metal flower are from an embellishment kit called Share What You Love.  

I have an 50th wedding anniversary party coming up and this special card with be going to that special couple!

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!


  1. Wow Jenny, what a beautiful card you've designed with that sketch as your inspiration. I love the combination of the foil frenzy and the pearlized doily. They really make a wonderful background for that gorgeous flower. The no-line watercolour technique works beautifully for that flower. Lovely creation. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. Very pretty card, Jenny! I love all the elements you've incorporated into it. Thanks for joining us at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. Marsha DT

  3. Absolutely love your no line watercolouring and your choice of papers and layout for this card Jenny. The flower looks like it could step out of the page. Thanks so much for sharing with us at the Anything Goes Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week. Awesome!

  4. Beautiful! Love that watercolour technique, and you've used the perfect set for doing that. Great idea to pair that lucious flower with the Foil Frenzy DSP. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.

  5. A great card.Thanks for playing along with us at Addicted to Stamps & More. Hope to see you again
