Fusion Challenge - May 21 - Wedding Belles

Hello Fusion Fans - we've got another fortnightly challenge for you over at Fusion!!  Just in time for all those June Wedding cards we'll be needing!?!  We had SO many beautiful entries for the yellow/grey challenge - you stampers really out did yourselves!
I actually needed an Anniversary card for my college roommate and her hubby, who's 38th Anniversary is actually today!  (this card already went postal and hopefully has arrived!)  I always remember how many years they have been married because I was one of her bridesmaids and I was 5 months pregnant with my son at their wedding!
So I took a little bit from the photo AND from the sketch for my design.  The strips are Washi Tape - and I always find if I don't wrap the ends of Washi tape around the card they tend to lift off over time - so I didn't make banners - I just used strips.  The flowers are made with Buttons Stock dies from PTI.  I clear embossed the yellow ones and punched little hearts to put in the centers.  Two of them are popped up on foam dots.
The Sentiment is from the Say it With Style set from Waltzingmouse and the panel is die cut with Stitched Mat Rectangle from Lil' Inker Designs.

Can't wait to see how this fortnight's challenge inspires you!   You will find all the details and more inspiration from the rest of  my talented Teamies over at The Fusion Card Challenge blog!

I have the same problem with washi, it's very temperamental! I love your card, Julia! I'm sure your friend loves it, too! :-)
