Love card

I made this card for my parent's anniversary next month - they will be celebrating 40 years!  I definitely admire them, they still go on dates and hold hands after all these years together - its very inspiring to my husband and I!  :-)

I used the sketch from the Scrapbook Steals Monday Card Madness #81 - great sketch, the card came together quick and easy!  The hardest part was picking out paper to use, which I finally decided on my new stack from My Mind's Eye 'A Happy Heart' stack - the colors in this are so pretty and I thought the flower petals looked like hearts, so it worked perfectly for the card I was making!  The sentiment stamp is from CTMH, the buttons and brads from my stash, I used CTMH Art Philosophy to cut the scalloped half circle and the banners I cut by hand.

Here's the sketch...
And my card!

The inside sentiment is from Stampin' Up.  Sorry for the poor lighting, it was cloudy this morning when I was taking the pictures and I couldn't get the inside picture to turn out very well, so I gave up!


  1. Very pretty and congrats to your parents. You don't hear too many long lasting love stories any more.
