Clean and Simple Cardmaking 2 Day 4 and Blog Anniversary

Blog Candy Alert!  Please see below for the blog candy information.

A year ago I posted my first cards on my blog.  They were actually Anniversary cards for my Brother and SIL's 40th Anniversary.  Operation Write Home was the program that got me to start this blog and start making cards for them. I am so glad I found their website! So in honor of my Blog-anniversary I am offering some blog candy to one of my faithful followers.   Now for my Anniversary Card.  

This card looks deceivingly simple yet I had to do it twice.  The first time as I grabbed what I thought was the blender pen and it was the black ink pen!  Oh No!  I did fix the card to use later by stamping and cutting out the flower that I black inked and gluing it over the mistake.  I made it one more time and now I'm not happy with the splatters, some of them got a little large on me.  Here is my card.

Products used:
Stamps:  Stampin'Up! Elements of Style, Recollections 5 Piece Wood Sentiment Set
Ink:  Stampin'Up! Island Indigo,  TsukinekoBrilliance Galaxy Gold Archival Ink
Embossing Powder:  Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold

Now for the Blog Candy:
Please follow me and leave a comment.  I will pick one winner on Friday February 8th to win a Creative Memories Color Me Happy 8x8 Paper Pack (12 Sheets of DSP and 12 Sheets of coordinating cardstock).  The colors are bright (hard to tell from the picture) and would make great Birthday/kids cards.  

Happy Crafting!
