Today my husband, Pat, and I are married 42 years. I must say that the weather on this anniversary is a whole lot nicer than it was on June 2, 1973. It is said, "Happy is the bride it rains on". Well, I did have my little morning rain. But, since we got married in the late afternoon, that wasn't a problem. But WAS IT WINDY! Our outdoor photos are not wonderful.
Enough of a walk down memory lane. Back to the present.
I decided to go with lots of texture and white on white for Pat's anniversary card:
The following photo shows the card in more usual daylight
rather than the dramatic lighting of the other pictures.
The heart was sort of fun to figure out. I used Framelits from two different sets. The top, smaller. heart is popped up onto the larger scalloped heart with THREE STAMPIN' DIMENSIONALS stacked on top of each other. I needed that much lift to accommodate the bulk of the bow.
I set a Basic Pearl into the center of one of our silver sequins to finish off the top heart. I think it adds a truly sweet touch.
Of course, the "you" comes from the Hello You Thinlits found on page 172 of the brand new catalog that goes into effect tomorrow, June 3! I get so much use out of those four precious little words!
Pat's comment when he opened the card was, "Wow, that's pretty fancy!"
The card's ideas were based upon the Paper Players' Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #247, as seen below. For the challenge, a participant is to choose any three items across, down or diagonally to use on her creation. As is probably obvious, I chose Die-Cut, Embossing and Sequins.
