Time Out #82 - Theme Challenge

Hi friends!  The Time Out challenge this time around is a theme challenge.  The theme is flowers (easy to do!) and the twist is to use the "kissing" technique.

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary this month, and my sister-in-law and my best friend pulled off a surprise party for us.  And when I say surprise, I mean SURPRISE!  We had no clue whatsoever!  There were about 40 friends and family there, and we had so much fun and felt so loved!  We received many wonderful gifts, and I had to make about 20 thank you cards.  I needed to make something simple because of the amount of cards I had to do, and I wanted to emboss them in silver.  I just got this lovely floral stamp and since the challenge was flowers, it worked out perfectly.  Using the MISTI, I was able to stamp these in Versamark and then emboss them in silver embossing powder.  I sprayed it with shimmer spritz and added the Nuvo Drops.  Simple cards, but they were perfect for what I needed.
Stop by the Time Out blog to see what the design team created for this challenge.  We are sponsored by Happy Little Stampers too!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a wonderful surprise and I hope that knew stood up to all the dancing! I really like this stamp, such a lovely design and love the added dots. To me this is not a quick card, I would have just stamped it! So embossing it in silver was a really good idea for your silver Anniversary x

Sounds like a wonderful celebration Lisa. This is a wonderful card. I just got this stamp, and am anxious to use it. The image is just as fabulous embossed and not colored as it is with color. Great thank you note!
