Sitting on my to-do list was making anniversary cards for three demonstrators from my team who are celebrating their ten-year anniversary as a demonstrator this fall. It's an important milestone, and one that's definitely deserving of receiving a special card. I based the design on the Mojo Monday sketch #476, and I picked an old ColourQ combo (#338) as colour inspiration.
I'm quite happy with how this design turned out. I used the fireworks from the It's a Celebration stamp set (2016 Holidays Catalogue), which was perfect for an anniversary. The "Congratulations" sentiment was pulled from the Floral Phrases stamp set (2016-2017 Annual Catalogue), and I used the frame from the Number of Years stamp set. The matching Framelits were used to die-cut the banner, but also the 10 numbers, out of Gold Foil Paper. A gold enamel shape star was added to my background, and I embossed the Pool Party mat with the Softly Falling embossing folder, which matches the firework image so nicely.
