HYCCT1508 ~Amazingly Amazing~

Hello Blogger Friends and happy Friday to you. It's the start of the weekend and we are celebrating our anniversary tomorrow.
We had plans to go to an area East of Pittsburgh in the Laurel Highlands on the Youghiogheny River. There is a beautiful bike path along the river and some great restaurants. But, hubby is sick with a cold and today the rain came.
We are going to try for tomorrow but weather and hubby are the big factors. There is always next weekend if it doesn't work out this Saturday.  I am not real hung up on exact dates for celebrating.
Now onto my card for today. This is another I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. Ann is the hostess for challenge 8, and she wants us to strengthen that one piece of designer paper by adding embellishments, color, paper piecing, etc.

For my card I chose this designer paper from the Stampin'-Up "watercolor wonder" collection. The paper is so beautiful that it was best not to cover it up with layers. I added some ribbon and a dahlia for my bow center.

I die-cut my "You" word in island indigo card stock and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin'-Up "painted petals" set. The die is from Simon Says Stamp. This was an easy challenge to complete.
Well, blogger friends it's time to bring this post to a close. So until next time......God bless.
