BBTB Wedding/Anniversary Challenge

Hi all!

We are all MELTING up here in Northern VA!  Today (Saturday) the heat index is 115 with 80% humidity *gag* - feeling pretty done with summer right now!

Our challenge this week on Bitten By the Bug is Wedding/Anniversary.  One day I might get my wedding pics in order and actually scrap them but that was not going to happen this week!  So instead - a Clean & Simple anniversary card in my wedding colors:

I was scrolling through images in the Cricut library and this one immediately drew me in and I envisioned the card right then so i went with it.  The heart image is from the Rustic Wedding cartridge.

I began with a piece of watercolor paper and some Twinkling H2O watercolors - these are luscious.  If you don't have any YOU NEED SOME.  Watercolor paint with tons of shimmer - not just thick heavy silver shimmer that blocks the color but shimmer that matches the paint.  I wish I could have captured the shimmer but the light wasn't quite right.  I added tiny silver glitter accents and that was it!

Head over to the BBTB Blog and see what the other designers have done and then add your won project to our linky!


  1. Very pretty card. I always imagine making a watercolor project, but never do.. You make it look so simple. Love the purple

  2. Oh, so pretty!! I love the purple watercolor, the bling adds just the perfect touch. Great choice on using this Image! I usually like summer also, but it has been so hot here, also. I feel like we have been cooped up all summer.
