Today my wonderful husband and I are celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary. I've been asking myself where has all that time gone and realize there is a lot of life and living in those years. We are truly blessed in our marriage, with our two terrific sons and with each other.
This card for my hubby is based on two challenges: The Friday Mashup #18 and A La Card Monkey #68. Glitter was also part of the Mashup challenge but I opted to leave it off this card; as it was, I already added pearls for the Mrs.
The card base is So Saffron card stock. The pennants were made using Just Add Cake designer paper and Wild Wasabi card stock. I punched out the bottom of the pennants with the Postage Stamp punch. Mr. & Mrs. Owl were made using So Saffron textured card stock (body), Just Add Cake designer paper (vest & dress), and Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, and Early Espresso card stock (eyes) punched out with the Owl Builder punch. Early Espresso ink was used to lightly sponge around each owl body. I free-hand cut the bow tie, added an Early Espresso brad for the knot, snipped off the brad thingees (I wish I knew what they were called) and attached it with a glue dot. A belt of pearls were added to Mrs. Owl's dress. The Mrs. was attached with dimensionals to an Early Espresso scallop circle that was matted with a larger Poppy Parade scallop circle and added to the card front. I popped up Mr. with dimensionals also. Hearts punched from the Owl Builder punch were added with dimensionals. The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was stamped with Early Espresso ink.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO MY BEST FRIEND AND BETTER HALF (TRULY) OF THIS ONGOING PARTNERSHIP. LOVE YOU!!!
