20th Anniversary — FMS215

It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for another sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  And this week, the very talented Jen Mitchell is our hostess.  She always makes such beautiful clean cards.  This is what she has for us:

Banners make me think of celebrations, and my husband and I have a big something to celebrate today — our 20th wedding anniversary.  I know.  I know.  You’re thinking I couldn’t possibly be old enough to have been married for 20 years.  🙂  ha!  I have been very blessed to call this man my husband, and I needed to make a special card for him for this occasion.  Here is a picture of us on our wedding day.

Masculine cards are always so tough for me, and this one was no exception.  I quickly realized I am seriously lacking in the anniversary stamps department.  I think I need to remedy that!

I ended up using three different stamp sets.  I used the Perfect Pennants stamp set for the focal image on the banner.  I used the Project Life set, Day to Day, and the Crazy About You stamp set for the heart.  The colors used are Lost Lagoon, Smoky Slate, and black.

20th anniversaryI used some of the Everyday Chic dsp and colored in random hearts with a Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Write Marker.  A little strip of Black Glimmer Paper adds a little sparkle, but since it’s black I figured it was still manly.  🙂

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
