40th Anniversary

Hi there 🙂 I’m continuing to use stuff that’s been sitting around 🙂 With this card, I used a BuzzCraft stamp set, that I’ve had for forever, and have no idea where I got it from!! I’m thinking it was either a challenge prize, or I received it as part of a swap in my SwapBot days. It can still be found for sale, as I dug it up here. I stamped the image with grey ink, and dug my seldomly used pencils up and colored it in. Then I used another part of the stamp set, and stamped a strip of Congratulations across the top. The background seemed too plain, so gave me the idea to go digging again, and I came up with a simple heart stencil. I finished it off with a line of red gems (really, they are red!) on either side of the sentiment strip – perfect for a ruby anniversary. I cut the 40 with some dies that were still in the package, and popped it on with foam dots.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
