PDCC128- Celebrate today and always

Happy Tuesday to you!  Today's card is an anniversary card I'm sending to my aunt and uncle. They are such a sweet sweet couple and always send Frank and I lovely cards on our birthday's and anniversary, so I wanted to be sure to return the sentiment to them.

I'm playing along with the Play Date Cafe Challenge#128 - which was an inspirational photo using bright pink and orange.

I grabbed my Hero Arts flower as my main image and popped up the three flowers on dimensionals. I colored them in with my prisma pencils and highlighted them with a few white dots from my gel pen.

I tried to do a little something funky with my PTI sentiment panel, by rolling the corners - not sure if I'm loving it - but it was different.  Then I went back to my layered ribbon technique.

Today's the last day for the challenge - but you have until midnight to enter!  Here's the info:

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Thanks for your visit!

WOW! This one jumped out of the computer at me! LOVE IT!
Really like the way you did the ribbon and the curled ends on the sentiment - but those colors are smashing!

So warm and wonderful! I love the curled ends on the sentiment banner. The white ink dots are the perfect touch.
