A March Anniversary ...

When I looked at the calendar this morning, I realized that our closest friends will be celebrating an anniversary on Friday.  I told my husband I'd better get a card made and ready to mail right away ... lest I'd forget!!  Especially with him having a Pet Scan scheduled for Friday ... that of course is utmost on my mind.  (routine since his transplant ... but non the less concerning when that time comes around).

(click on image to enlarge)

If you peek at the left corner ... you will see I have made a matching envelope.  The inside of the card matches the paper used for my lacy strip on the front of the card & envelope flap.

The recipe for this card is as follows:
Image - Inkadinkado rubber stamp
Paper - K&Co. Susan Winget Botanical designer paper, white & eggplant cardstock
Accessories - Spellbinder Labels 10 Nestabilities, Kaiser pearls, Martha Stewart lacy butterfly and lacy border punch, K&Co. dimensional flower sticker, Deco Art Glamour Dust

A few other challenges this creation qualifies for are:
Sentimental Sundays - Pearls & Lace 
Let's Ink It Up - NO DIGI and Embossing (heat embossed words)
Stamptacular Sunday - Good Luck, Congratulations or Best Wishes
Raise The Bar - Just a Sentiment
Totally Papercrafts - Pearls & Lace

My girlfriend rarely looks at my blog (as far as I know!) ... let's hope she doesn't decide to start looking now!  LOL!!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are having a very RELAXING Sunday afternoon!!
