This is my card for the challenge today using Penny Black Products.

happy Anniversary card

To make this card, I started with sponging the white card panel with Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon and Abandoned Coral distress inks. Then I die cut a white panel using The Garden die from penny Black  which I layered on the sponged card panel using foam adhesive. I love the colours peeking out of the die cut. This panel is adhered to card front. 

Happy Anniversary closeup

The sentiment is from Penny Black You and Me stamp set which I white heat embossed on the black cardstock and adhered on the card front with bunched up silver thread. Quick and simple card but the colours and contrast makes a huge impact.
