The Power of Two

I am so thrilled to show you all this card I created tonight. That's right- I created a card and am blogging about it all after 9 pm. Shocker. The second reason I am thrilled to show you this card is that I love the sentiment. My life has been thoroughly transformed when I met my husband Bubba. I know that marriage wasn't on our life plan, but it certainly has worked out for us the last almost 7 years. Together, we are way stronger than we are apart. The stuff we've been through has made us stronger. The Power of Two has been essential in our survival.

Stamps: Yippee-Skippee!
Paper: Whisper White, Silver Foil, Silver Vellum Foil, Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: Silver Encore Ink
Accessories: Silver Embossing Powder, Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack, 1" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Tag Topper Punch, Striped Embossing Folder, Silver 1/4" Trim, Project Life Corner Punch

To make the rings, I first punched the smaller, 1", Circle and then the larger, 1 1/4" Circle. I got the idea from a fellow demonstrator for two rings of silver paper, but my card is different than hers in design. You can check out Jennifer Blomquist's card here at her blog Northwest Stamper.

I also added a little silver banner edge that falls off the edge, but my poor photography skills don't show it. With so much reflection, it was hard to get it to show up.

I love this sketch for this week's As You See It Challenge!

Join us by next Wednesday to be a part of the fun!

Happy Stamping!
