Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!

Today is my parents' 39th wedding anniversary.  I wanted to make a different style of card, just to make it a little more exciting and special.  I've seen a few of the 'Just a Note' style cards and thought they were really cute, so I decided I wanted to try to create that style of card on my Gypsy.  Overall, I was really pleased with how it turned out.  Also, I've had Glossy Accents for a long time, but haven't used them.  I've seen so many others use it on their projects, and I must say, pictures do not do Glossy Accents justice!!  Now that I've seen the results in person, I'm wondering why I haven't been using them this whole time!  I put Glossy Accents and glitter on the diamond of the ring and Glossy Accents on the champagne bottle and glasses and love how it turned out.  Thanks for coming by to check out my creation.  Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!
