Anniversary Tag

Welcome - thank you for taking the time to visit.

This card is for a couple celebrating a wedding anniversary, and I chose to use the Layers of Color Love Chapter set of stamps.

I am always aware that an anniversary card goes to a couple, so try to not to make it too feminine.

The sentiment is from the Happy Wishes Set, also by Layers of Color, and the tag made using a Labels 14 die, which was embossed and used as a stencil for the sponging.

I could not get a good close up of this stamp, but it is 1 Cor.13 vs 4-6 in a beautiful script.  This and the torn  paper were both sponged with violet ink.

The pearls finished the card.

I love the design of this one. I don't know why, but I seen to always put the border across the bottom. Thanks for the inspiration, I will have to remember to do it across the top. And I love that you used purple! Very pretty!
