Anniversary Special

Hello everyone,

Today's card celebrates my sister and brother-in-law's 25th wedding anniversary. As siblings (there are four of us) we don't really acknowledge wedding anniversaries but 25 years is not an easy feat in this day and age and I'm really happy for them.

The background paper is Prima Fairy Floral Garden Party. The sentiment, Gina K Fanciful Tags, is stamped in Stampin' Up Old Olive on Whisper White and layered on Close To My Heart Smoothie and more Old Olive. The Smoothie layer is textured with Crafts-Too Daisy Flourish dry embossing folder then highlighted with Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. The embellishments are Close To My Heart Bitty Sparkles.

This card ended up much more feminine than I intended. I wanted to use some really special paper and I love this Prima sheet which really speaks for itself. It was challenging to find the right solid paper to accompany this paper because there are just so many options to choose from. I suspect my brother-in-law will overlook this cards femininity knowing that it truly comes from the heart.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
