Happy Anniversary

Hello friends..first let me thank you for all your kind and wonderful compliments and comments left!
Today I would like to share a card with you, which was ordered by sweet Pamela for her parents forthcoming wedding anniversary. Pamela and I spoke about 3 possible images that could work and I was so thrilled she liked this cute image. Some of you may know I am not too much into baby cards or Wedding cards at all. In fact this card is my very first “Anniversary” card I have ever made, if I remember correctly.
I liked that this image gave me the possibility to use some colored papers and I knew right away I wanted to use my very few sheets of Basic Grey’s Wisteria paper. I loved this paper so much. Do you guys remember when at the time the kind of matching Magnolia line came out? OMG.. we all used this paper giggle
The stamped sentiment in the inside says
”The best thing to hold onto in life is each other
Happy Anniversary”
I was able to fit it to a nice sized paper and place it so to the pattern paper, that the Wisteria flowers look like they are cascading over the sentiment. The card base was easy to make you will need 1 full sheet of 12x12 paper. With Bazzill bling you want to be very carefully with scoring. I had to do mine twice because I wanted the fronts to close really tightly, any gap will show up even wider on photos AND if you have patterned paper adhered in the inside.

Here is the supply list for this card
Image: Lili of the Valley
Sentiment front: Lili of the Valley
Sentiment inside: first one source unknown.. I believe Stampin up – Happy Anniversary is by Stampin up
Die: Heart tag by Magnolia So Wrapped Lovely”- through Sir Stampalot
Crochet lace, butterfly charm, bakers twine and sweetheart roses are “The Ribbon Girls
Paper: Basic Grey Wisteria
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, silver corner
Ribbon buckle: Cute Stamps and Cards
