Happy Anniversary, my darling!

Hello!

This week was my wedding anniversary. Unfortunately for the hubby, I was nursing my sick daughter leading up to the day, and then I was dying on the couch on the day itself after catching the bug my daughter had. This meant that no card was made for the occasion. Four days late isn't too late, is it? :-)  We've been married 13 wonderful years this year. We've been together for 19 years. Time passes by so quickly!

Here is the card.
Card is PTI Vintage Cream, SU! Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake. Ink is Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake. Stamps are PTI Heart Prints and Think Big Favorites #16. Button is PTI. Twine is Twinery.

I really like how it turned out. I am responding to the CR84FN colour challenge #63, and it calls for the colour "denim". My blue collection is severely limited, so I made "denim" by mixing SU! Bashful Blue and a dab of Night of Navy. I actually love the colour result, I may use it again. :-)  I'm also throwing my hat into the ring for the DT call at CR84FN.
I used a sketch from Retro Sketches #30. I turned the sketch upside down.
Thanks for dropping by.

Hi Michelle! I love the simple way you used the color combo here. So eye-catching! I just got the e-mail this morning, so I am still working on my submission for this challenge.

Big congrats on your anniversary although I'm sorry you were so sick! It's never too late for a card especially when it's as awesome as this one. I love that there isn't a red heart in sight and your denim colour is genius!

Perfection in paper form! Happy anniversary too!

I love this, Michelle. A wonderful anniversary card and the colors are fab. Hope you're feeling better. This weekend I've been sick after nursing my two girls all week. It's the way of things for us moms, isn't it? ann
