PPC-CC #49 & Stampin 411 Sketch Challenge #191

Ok, this card has been along time coming for me. I needed to do something really challenging for myself. I have been practicing making flowers this morning until I got just what I wanted. I wanted to make this such a special anniversary card and go all out for Picture Perfect Creations First Anniversary!!!! Click the links to join in the fun in these two weekly challenges: http://www.ppc-challenges.blogspot.com/ and http://www.stamping411.blogspot.com/

below is list of items used:

- SU! paper colors: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Garden Green, Basic Gray, Black
- SU! ink colors used: black, old olive, pink parouette and pomogrante, choc. chip
- SU! tools used: scalloped circle punch and label punch, Baroque Motif, Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets
- Misc. items used: I used my old CM 1" & 1/2" circle punch to make petals of rose. 1" circle punch and scalloped circle punch to make the mini roses. I used my sons stencil template to make the leaf branch, cause my SU! bird punch is not here yet (I just now have ordered it) (but I do think of myself as being creative, so I use what I can find around the house!) I also used Martha Stewart fern ribbon to scatter across the top of card. I also used Recollections light gray, black and dark pink rhinestone stickers.
