50th Anniversary Card

 A lot of us are making valentines right now. I believe it's a great time to tell others how much we love them. It also reminds me that I never have enough anniversary cards to tell couples how special their love is. I made a couple of cards for a 50th anniversary to help friends celebrate the longevity of their love and commitment.

The next one uses the same basic pattern and papers, but different ribbon and embellishments.

I stamped flowers and script behind the stamped frame using a retired CTMH stamp set. The sparkly card also has a bee from that stamp set. I used one of my newest CTMH sentiment stamps for the "Happy Anniversary" sentiment. All of the supplies are from CTMH except the gold ribbon and heart sparkles, and flowers from Michaels.

Thank you for visiting! May you be blessed with love overflowing to share with all those around you!
