Anniversary Card

I've seen so many gorgeous monochromatic projects lately
that I just had to sit down and create something of my own.

It's tricky working with such a limited color palette,
but I'm really happy with the way this card turned out.

My Big Shot got A LOT of use on this card!

Looking at it now I kind of wish I hadn't added the greenery,
but I still love it.

I used three different sets of Spellbinders and layered them.

I embossed the bottom and top layers using some Cuttlebug folders.
The rolled flowers --  who knew they were so easy?!
I cut out a circle with my circle punch and cut a sloppy spiral.
Then rolled it up and added a pearl to the center.
Easiest. Flower. Ever.

Here's the sentiment on the inside:
