 I decided to take a break from Christmas cards and make an anniversary card using KISSY KISSY from The Greeting Farm.

I created this card for Spy Day #12 at TGF's Farm Fresh Challenges.  The challenge is to create a card based on this card by Beate.....

I used an eyelet lace border punch and matching corner punch to punch all the way around the card. 

For the background square I started with a black card stock square.  To it I added a square cut from pink swirl glitter card stock.  I then cut a triangle from sugar n spice card stock and added a white scallop cut piec of card stock to the inside edge. 

I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils. I cut it in a circle and backed it in black.  I cut around the image using scallop scissors. Then added it to the center of the card. 

The sentiment is hand written with black ink and cut out in a circle.  I backed it in black and then cut around it with scallop scissors.  I added it to the bottom corner. I added 2 pink mini rhinestones and 1 clear mini rhinestone just under the word love.

To the opposite bottom corner I added a black pearl swirl.  I then added a white bow just above the swirl.  I added a piece of cotton candy baker's twine to a pink button and added it to the center of the bow.

To the upper corner I added a pink rhinestone heart and a clear rhinestone heart.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges....
