Anniversary Card for Dennis

My friend Dennis will be married for six years in a couple weeks, and he asked me to make him an anniversary card to give to his wife. I really hope she likes it.

I've been doing some things recently that are French and Marie-Antoinettey, so I started off with by making the big white label shape and embossing it with Swiss dots. In order to make the "Swiss" dots "French" dots, I brayered black ink over top of them. Thanks to Mel McCarthy for this idea!

The owl and the swan are from the new Inkadinkado clear set Patterned Birds and Bugs. I am going to have so much fun with this set! They were embossed, cut out, and colored with Stampin' Up! markers.

Speaking of French things, have you checked out Oxford Impressions new Marie Antoinette plate? Fabulous! I understand Suzanne over at Oxford Impressions is going to be releasing another plate really soon that will complement this plate. I should probably make some of these polka-dotted labels for her!
