Anniversary Wishes Viva La Verve

I'm finally back with my first card for June! After not crafting for over a week, I found myself a little out of practice when I sat down to make this card, so I decided to ease into it and make a simple card.

I used Amber's 2nd Viva La Verve sketch for June, VLVJun02, for my Anniversary Wishes card. The "twist" was to use something new. My something new is both new product and a new "handkrafted" embellishment. While we were in MN, I had a chance to visit an Archiver's store for the very first time! I found this beautiful K & Company patterned paper, which I used on my card. And I used the fabulous tutorial by Nichole to make my crochet flower.

Thanks for stopping by!
