Anniversary Card

Hello!  Are you all having a good week??  My week started off great - we had weather in the 80s and I was enjoying some time outside.  Today though, a big turn for the worse..... cold weather, rain and now this evening.....snow!!  In May!!  A very strange occurrence around here!  I thought spring was finally here, but I guess I was wrong!

Anyway, on to my project.....

I made this anniversary card for my grandparents.  If my calculations are correct, they have been married for 66 years now.  Such an inspiration!

I wanted to make something a little different than an A2 card, so I decided to use the scalloped circle card base and layer from the Birthday Bash cartridge.  I thought it went well with the heart image with the scalloped background from the Wedding cartridge.

I'm going to link this card up to this week's Wedding Bells are Ringing challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2. Thanks for coming by to take a look!

Cardstock from DCWV Shimmer Stack
Scallop card base from Birthday Bash cut at 3.25 inches
Heart image from Wedding cartridge cut at 5 inches
Ribbon from The Paper Studio
Sentiment from My Craft Spot's Happily Ever After set
