June is the month for weddings and today my husband Bob and I are celebrating the 18th anniversary of ours! 

In honor of this month of celebration, the theme for the  HERO ARTS June Challenge is Weddings and Congratulations.  The technique is Watercolors by Shari Carroll.  This is the card I made for Bob for our anniversary and for the June Challenge.
 I first inked the floral stamp in Rich Cocoa and then used a baby wipe to take ink off three of the flowers. I inked those in the Bamboo Leaves and then stamped that image onto the white cardstock. I stitched that layer onto the kraft paper. Next, I wound the twine diagonally across the image and tacked it down behind the kraft paper.  I glued that entire piece onto brown cardstock, then glued that onto a white card.  I die-cut the pp and white cardstock using a Nestie, stamped and embossed my sentiment on it, then added the pearls. I used pop glue dots to raise and glue the label onto the card.
