Bring Home the Silver

With all the talk of the Olympics, I have gold, silver, and bronze on the brain!  But today I'm here to share a different kind of silver with you - a silver anniversary!  One of my co-workers asked for a special card for her parents' 25th wedding anniversary.  And how could I resist playing with May I Have This Dance? from My Favorite Things?!?!  I absolutely love this stamp set for anniversary projects!  I  colored the couple with Copics and paper pieced the woman's dress.  I decided to fussy cut them to accommodate my layout.  And if I'm going to use MFT stamps and their current sketch (MFTWSC83), why not go all out with MFT dies too, right?  I've used two Die-namics here: Dizzy Doily and Fishtail Flags Stax.  Papers are My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose - Hattie.  I added a few flowers from my stash, chipboard glitter numbers, and some punched Martha Stewart butterflies for the little details.  I adore My Favorite Things and though I often use their sentiments, it seems I just don't get to play with the rest of my collection nearly enough!  I have resolved to make it a point to do so more often going forward!  Goodies this fun weren't meant to sit on the shelf!  They need to be inked up!  The sentiment here is also MFT, created by combining two of the words found in the Make the Date set.

And right now they are previewing their August collection which will be release on my birthday (August 7th)!!!  If you haven't taken a peek yet, you should visit the MFT blog!  There are fun stamps and dies for every crafting style!  Click here if you'd like to go shopping!

I apologize for the short post tonight but I'm off to craft and to get organized for tomorrow's Sassy Studio Designs' Fabulous Freebie Friday!  Be sure to check back to see what awesome image Lindsay has up for grabs this week!

Also, I hope you'll check out my birthday blog candy!  I have a Saturated Canary $20 voucher to give away to one lucky follower!

Markers used:  Copics (E11, E21, E00, B34, B37, B39)

Have a wonderful evening!
