Anniversary Wishes

Wow, it's been quite a long time since I was last on here. Thank you for having patience with me as I have been spending the last few months just being with my family. My crafting time has been down to pretty much nothing lately but I am hoping that that is going to change soon. I think I may have finally started getting some of my inspiration back again...keep your fingers crossed.

So my mother in law and father in law just celebrated their 59th Anniversary recently...59 years, wow! Not many people can say that they have been happily married for that many years. My parents made it to their 60th Anniversary and what a wonderful milestone it was. So of course I had to come out of hibernation and make a card for the in laws. I started out with a card cut file freebie from Birds Cards called a Swirly Deep Edged Card that I cut using my Silhouette. I then added this adorable freebie bride and groom by Jade Dragonne at Deviant Art.

I coloured the image with my Chameleon pens (please excuse the guy's face...I had a problem lol). I added ribbon from SU and little rhinestones in my stash. The yellow cs is by Bazzil, the white is Recollections and the dp is also from Deviant Art. The sentiment is my own made with some of the words from the Anniversary song. The fancy square behind the image is from my Nestibilities Labels One Small.
The corners on the inside were punched with a Martha Stewart punch...not sure what it's called as I got it second hand. I found this wonderful sentiment for the inside on Splitcoast Stampers. Thank you so much for popping in. Hugs ~ Charlene
