Simple Anniversary

I just remembered it was my brother's wedding anniversary tomorrow and I totally forgot to make him a card. SOOOOO, I quick whipped one up and got it in the mail today. He lives 30 miles north of me. What are the odds of it arriving tomorrow??? But then again the holiday weekend did buy me some time, they are out of town!!!! If it doesn't arrive tomorrow it will be there on Tuesday! Either way they will be getting it late!!! LOL

For this card I used the Stampin' Up! "To Have and to Hold" set. It's such a fun and yet elegant set. I REALLY hope it will still be in the upcoming catalog. Keep your fingers crossed on that one!!!

The words were done on the computer. I couldn't find an anniversary rubber stamp that would fit within the small oval punch. I layered the words on a piece of brushed silver card stock.

I did use the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder. You know it's one of my favorite background folders to play with.

I colored in the campaign glasses using the So Saffron marker. There really isn't a lot to this card. But then again I did say I quick whipped up this card!!!

The beautiful decorative paper is from the Bella Birds package. I thought the color would go well with the brushed silver. The base of the card is made using a half sheet of Brocade Blue. And to cover the lines between the decorative paper and the dotted swiss I used some white grosgrain ribbon I got at The Dollar Tree. Such a great deal on that ribbon. It contained 5 yards!!!! Now that is a really good deal.

I was going to post my new technique page today but I didn't get it finished. I will post it tomorrow so stay tuned!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
