An Anniversary Card for Speedy!


Can you believe it? I found out Saturday that I had won in Speedy the Cat's challenge at Mark's Finest Papers and emailed them my address and the stamp set came today. That is fast and I was fast to my craft room to create a card using the set "Big Cats". The challenge is to make an anniversary card and I knew this is perfect for Rick, even though our anniversary is not until November and there was no way I could wait until then to show him the card. Lol, he will have forgotten about it by then and it will be an surprise again.
The pictures don't do this justice, so much better irl. I love the details on their stamps, you can see the whiskers when it is stamped. Awesome! I have been wanting the African Veldt set and now will just have to order it!

Hope you love this as much as I do....and will check out their challenge for this week!

Card Details:
Paper: GinaK designs chocolate brown, dp Pressed Petals, Stampin' Up Ivory
Ink: Versafine onyx black, prismacolor pencils and oms
extras: Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles, SU top note, SU hemp twine
Images: MFP Big Cats, SU sentiment from A Word for You
