Celebration Time at Allsorts Challenge

Hello and welcome! It's Saturday and that means a new theme starts today at Allsorts challenge for everyone to join in! It's Kath's turn to host and she picked the theme of Celebration Time - birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, new home, new job, Christmas and more! We'd love for you to get crafty and share with us! One lucky winner will receive  a Tonic die and  your entry may be one of the top 5!

I made an anniversary card for my husband (last month was our 22nd anniversary) using the Hero Arts February 2019 stamp kit

By the way their classic kits (where still available and this one including) are now reduced ($5 off). There are currently a total of 8 kits in this reduced category, you can see these 8 kits here or take a look at all of their monthly kit products

I  created an inky background using distress inks - Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire. A circle die cut and a wide strip of masking tape were used to mask off the bottom border and moon. 

The dancing couple from the stamp kit was stamped using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink (I need to buy a re-inker for my ink pad!!)  and I used the matching die that comes with this kit to cut out the image. I used foam tape to adhere to the card.
The '"true love" sentiment is an oldie from Whimsy Stamps - Chalkboard sentiments, but unfortunately it is no longer available and I wasn't able to find anything comparable. The music notes are part of the Hero Arts kit. 

On the bottom part I used one of Tim Holtz's Quotations stickers

Thanks so much for visiting!
