H2H Challenges: Anything Goes!

Heart 2 Heart Challenges is offering a fun "anything goes" challenge this week to help you get crafting to beat the summer heat.  I've been working on several projects lately, so I thought I would share my parents' 50th anniversary card.  First, though, I must show the inspiration behind their card!
My card began with a Peacock card stock base, but not your typical base because this card is actually an easel card!
On the White Daisy center panel, I meticulously stamped my sayings with the Pen Pal alphabet in Peacock ink.  The "50" I stamped and heat embossed with gold powder.  Both anchors were cut with the CTMH/Cricut You Are Here cartridge.
Gold glitter paper, gold glitter gems, and burlap ribbon finished off the card.  Below, you can see how the card looks opened from the side.
Thanks for letting me share this monumental milestone with you!  Be sure to check out all of the Design Team's inspiration on the H2H blog.  You have all month to join us!

July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Highlight Reel

Welcome to the July CTMH stamp of the month blog hop featuring Highlight Reel!  You're going to love creating and sharing the highlights of your life.  (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Darlys Recker's blog.  From here, you'll visit my talented friend Alyson's blog next.)
Each month I participate in a stamp of the month card swap, and it was a challenge at first to use this adorable set on a card!  I ended up using the Central Park collection and sketch pattern 13 from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4.  On the card base itself, I stamped Good Times in Pacifica and the music notes in Mink.  For the cute card, I first stamped in in black ink and then colored the wheels with Shin Han Twin Touch Warm Gray WG4 and the body with Carmine.  I went back and used my silver metallic marker to color the bumpers and a little Glacier ink with a water brush to highlight the windows.
