Anniversary Joy

Today's card was created for my aunt and uncle's upcoming anniversary at the end of this month. I started with some pretty patterned paper from the Chickaniddy Scrumptious 6x6 paper pad and die cut an oval in the center using an MFT pierced oval die.  I adhered the patterned paper directly onto my white card base and then added some black stitched lines around the outer edge of the patterned paper and the inner edge of the oval panel. I then die cut the word Joy using some black cardstock from Hobby Lobby and  the coordinating die from Papertrey Ink's Phrase Play #8 stamp and die set. I fussy cut around the panel cutting the word "joy" from the frame because I just wanted the word itself. I adhered the die cut sentiment directly onto the card using my Zig 2 way glue pen. I then stamped the word anniversary above the die cut using a Studio Calico-Hero Arts stamp set. I apologize for not knowing the name of this stamp set but I bought it used on a destash and it has no name on it. Using some mini Stampin' UP dies I die cut the flower petals using some more patterned paper from the Chickaniddy paper pad and layered them together. I punched some more of the same black cardstock using an EK Success 1/2" circle punch and adhered them directly on top of the flowers and then adhered those directly onto the card on either side of the oval. Once adhered I added a few clear rhinestones from The Paper Studios and called this card done. I hope you like it!
