You're Amazing

It's Wednesday, and that means a new sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches! This week's sketch is from Cindy and I know you are going to have fun with this one.
I decided to make this card for my husband, as we are celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary today. He truly is amazing, so I thought this image worked perfectly.
When I received this stamp set (You're Amazing)I decided to cut the sentiment out from the surrounding frame, giving me a little more flexibility with both images. I was a little hesitant at first, but now I'm really glad that I did as I feel like I actually gained an extra stamp - yippee! I went with masculine colors, knowing it was for my hubby, combining Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit. I hope you get a chance to play along with this week's sketch - stop over at the Freshly Made Sketches blog and share your creation.

Stunning card! The colours are great together and you're idea of seperating that stamp is one I might use as well. The small stars add the perfect pop.
