Stampin' Sisterhood May Sunday Challenge

 If you are looking for my Day 2  Waltzingmouse Preview post -   please scroll down - thank you!

It's the first Sunday of the month - and that means a new Stampin' Sisterhood challenge!  Jacquie has a cool little sketch for us:
and here is the card I created using the sketch
I used several new stamps just released at the Rubbernecker store -  the pretty silhouette wildflower is Floral #4 - #609-01 and the sentiments are from the Best Wishes Set #600.  I stamped the images and sentiment on Melon Berry card stock, cut them with Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Dried Marigold Ranger Distress ink before taking them out of the die.   I layered them on the green panel with foam tape, stamped Happy Anniversary on the panel and added 2 black sticky pearls.  I didn't add a lot of 'fluff' since an anniversary card usually goes to a guy as well as a girl so I didn't want to make it too fancy!

We hope you'll play along with the May sketch challenge. You have all month to link your creation to the Stampin' Sisterhood blog where you will find all of the details!
