Happy Anniversary


This is my card for the VSN Challenge: Falling in Love.

As many of my friends know, my DH and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this past July -- except that we didn't celebrate, as I was in one state and he was in another. So I made this card for him, and I will give it to him when we do get to celebrate!

The black ribbon in the middle is supposed to be reminiscent of a garter like I wore on our wedding day. The wedding couple is a new Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I used Everyday Flexible Phrases -- one teeny stamp (but a BIG word with meaning for me!)! I love that set because you can make just about any sentiment you need or want!

May I ask what set the wedding couple is from? It is so perfect for an anniversary card I plan to do.

Happy Anniversary! Very nice card. I didn't realize that there was this CB embossing folder; I made a wedding card yesterday and have no wedding stamps. This image for the CB is very nice.

Man oh man...this one knocks your socks off! Gorgeous! I really love this one and wished I could have made one just half as beautiful for my parents 25! You will win on this one, if it is a contest.
