Two Anniversary Cards

I saw the challenge theme at Incy Wincy Designs and Ooh La La Creations this week to make anniversary cards. After making valentines and love cards in February, I still wanted to use the loving images and sentiments I still had out. I also realized I should really make more anniversary cards. I've missed some anniversaries that I should have helped my friends and family celebrate. I thought for quite a while about an inside message that I wanted to write, so I'm sharing first the message I typed for the inside of these cards. I wanted to convey the truth that as we grow closer to the Lord together, we grow closer to each other.

Another challenge I saw was to use swirls and pearls which I thought was perfect for an anniversary card. This card has swirls in the stamped image:

My second card used a random stamped panel that I started long ago and set aside. I really procrastinated on this one, but I thought it would make a great anniversary card with some additions. I especially liked the swirly die cut using the gold glitter paper. The prima and ribbon flowers were the perfect addition to a stamped panel I didn't know how to finish.

Thank you for visiting. May God bless you as you share your cards and your love with friends and family.

I'm sharing these cards with the following challenges:

Creative Moments #37 - anything goes/swirls and pearls
Incy Wincy Designs - Anniversary
Inklings and Yarns #46 - anything goes
Love to Scrap #25 - make your own background (my 2nd card)
Ooh La La Creations #151 - Happy Anniversary
Whimsy Inspirations #68 - Love is in the Air
Word Art Wednesday #122 - anything goes with uplifting verse
