FYI – Elegant Anniversary

It is time for another For Your Inspiration challenge. Check out the latest challenge -> FYI32.

Such a serene photo. I love the layers of white trees contrasted with the grey of the bridge. I used the shape of the bridge as an element in my card design.

I had so many ideas for this photo! I finally decided I would make an anniversary card – and that helped me narrow down the composition and pick my elements.

The sentiment was stamped on a Photo Finisher die cut (one that reminded me of the bridge).

The photo is darker on the bottom with the water, so I layered pattern paper on the bottom of my card.

One thing I loved was how the dark tree trunks peeked through the white trees. I chose to use a doily die cut because the holes would allow darker bits to peek out.

Finally a few pearls to help bring the focus to the sentiment.

Thanks for taking a peek!
