My 15th Anniversary

I thought I'd bring you a taste of Paris for today's Stampsmith Design Team card. I made this card for my hubby, Jim, for our 15th wedding anniversary this week. Perhaps some day we'll actually be able to go to Paris to celebrate our anniversary! Unfortunately, it won't be for this one as Jim's away at sea right now, but we'll celebrate when he gets home. Oh, the joys of military life...

This gorgeous Eiffel Tower photostamp comes from the Paris plate. The flower is another one that I made when my friend, Val came over for some crafty therapy time. We had a great night making a bunch of these flowers using different die cuts and patterned papers. You can achieve such a different look just by the patterned paper and the die cut that you use. In case you'd like to try making some of these flowers, here's a link to the tutorial that we followed.
Here's a close up of the Stampsmith Sentiment. It's also from the Paris Plate.

Feel free to check out some beautiful samples from the rest of the Stampsmith Design Team by checking out the Stampsmith blog. Also, a reminder that we just started up a new Stampsmith challenge blog, for an opportunity to grow your Stampsmith rubber collection just by playing along in the fun! So, what are you waiting for? Pop on over and join us! :)
