Anniversary card for DH


Sunday is our 17th wedding anniversary. Time flies! I forgot all about making a card. The end of the school year is always hectic, but this really snuck up on me. Yesterday I ran so many errands...I can't believe all I got accomplished (I was motivated because it was the last day of school...it's much harder to run errands with my munchkins.) I don't know how much I will make or how often I will be able to blog this summer, but I hope you won't delete me from your list of blogs you peruse :)
I sat in my craft room last night and tried to remind myself NOT to think (I tend to over think and accomplish nothing.) I used Laura's Sketch 2 from the blog "2 Sketches 4 You". This card involves NO STAMPING!
Linen cs & layers: Simply Stamped Papers
Scrap of anniversary paper: Masterpiece Studio
be mine FOREVER: MM woven label
black gross grain: Michael's
Happy Anniversary: Class-A-Peels/ Stampendous
I also used a Prismacolor paint pen (silver) to edge the cs layers for added dimension.
