Anniversary Card

Have you ever made a card and when you finished it, you thought, "I'm going to make a second one of these to have on hand."?  This is one of those cards.  Now I must confess, when I quit working on it last night I thought it was a lost cause.  The paper and the colors I was trying to put together just would not satisfy me.  So, I put it aside until this afternoon.  I decided this afternoon to discard some of the die cuts I was using and to use a different color for the top die cuts.  I love it now.  This one will go to my brother in Texas and his wife who will be celebrating 40 years of marriage in March.

Card supplies:
6X6" card base
Background paper - DCWV Lace & Linen Stack
Anna Griffin Fretwork Die
Anna Griffin Bow from the All Hearts Set
If you don't have the AG Dies, I believe these cuts are available in AG cartridges too.
Spellbinders Labels 13
Butterfly Punch by Martha Stewart

Thanks for visiting with me today.  I hope you will try something like this and let me.  I would love to see your creations.  God Bless You!!! Peggy
