One of the many reasons why the Valentined Defined stamp set is one of my favorites is that the images in it are so versatile! I just love the tree image, and used it to make this soft and pretty anniversary card. The layout is from the Wednesday Card Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com; this layout is SC315. What is the sketch challenge? You take the sketch provided and use any stamp set, any accessory, and any kind of paper to make a card following the layout design. I have printed out all the card sketches and keep them in a binder, and when I'm having trouble coming up with a layout idea (which is quite often!) I look through my binder and always find several great ideas. This card uses the same basic color theme as my other two Valentine Defined cards: Sahara Sand, Blush Blossom and Pear Pizzazz. I sponged around the edges of the top and bottom layers of my tree image with Pear Pizzazz to give them a bit more definition.
