Dynamic Duos #64 - An Anniversary Card

Hi!  It's time for a new color challenge.  It's Dynamic Duos #64.  We're using one of Stampin' Up!'s brand new colors...Strawberry Slush as one half of the duo this week.  I had to break open my new pack, since I've not used this color before.  These colors say "summer time" don't they?   Hmmm.  Maybe strawberry lemonade?

Actually, I needed to create an anniversary card for an Aunt & Uncle who will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this month.  What a happy occasion!

Once I finally decided on a layout, and where I would use each color (yeah, it took a long time), then I had fun with this card.  I was stamping with a couple of friends the day I made this card and one of them was using an edge punch and paper crimper to make cardstock "ruffles".  It was so pretty!  So I just had to use her technique on this card.  I'm really pleased with the texture it adds.  Thank you Cheryl!
See that tiny heart with the date of the 25th?  I coated it with a bit of glossy accents for bit of shine.  And the pom pom trim?  It's from SU.  I've been waiting for the right card to use this sweet trim.  Love it!
