17 years

Happy Wednesday! 17 years ago today Rich and I got married. I know I say this every year but where does the time go? It is hard to believe that much time has gone by since then. In honor of this special day I made him this card.

Keeping with his love of birds I finally got to use my Love Birds stamp set. I started by embossing a square on the front of Stampers Select White Cardstock. After that I diecut the large cage and stamped it. Next I added the 2 birds and a heart then attached it to the card. When I was done with that I stamped the chain and the sentiment from Fillable Frames #4. To finish it off I drew a black frame where the embossed lines were and matted it on Pure Poppy and Black Cardstock. This is a very clean and simple card but that is what he likes. The colors are not his favorite but I thought they went great with the birds. Hopefully he will still like it. That's all for now I will be back Saturday with a new Sketch For You To Try. Until then I hope the rest of your week is a great on and thanks for stopping by.
