Happy Anniversary Love

Hi friends - welcome back for a fun little post. Anyone remember THIS card I created a couple weeks ago for Just Us Girls (JUGS) Trend Week Hearts; the white one with the distress background and hearts? I used Press n Seal before adhering the outline hearts to my card, so that meant I kept the inside hearts just as they were on the Press n Seal.

So then remember THIS post? So yeah, I created two of the floral backgrounds, sprayed this one with shimmer mist.

BTW, before we go any further, can I just say I am SO THANKFUL my man is a man and doesn't mind hearts, flowers, glitter, whatever - as long as it's from me and made with love, he could care less. :D

So TODAY is our 25th wedding anniversary. WOW, WOW, WOW! Hard to believe it's been 25 years. I'm sure you also remember, I'm only 26...right! ;) Yes, I know - the math just doesn't really work but let's just roll with it....mmm...kkkkk....?

So take those 'inside' hearts from the first card, the extra background I made and voila, a card for YOU + ME; well for hubby and me!

I die cut the Hero Arts LOVE multiple times from PTI Hibiscus Burst card stock, sponged Worn Lipstick on the bottom, then lightly tapped on some Hero Arts Unicorn ink to the top of the word; once dry, I coated with glossy accents. I layered it all up and mounted on some designer paper, some white polka dot acetate and black sparkle paper. Then in searching through my hoard stash, I came across this wooden YOU + ME - swoon! First I painted it white, a couple layers did the trick. Once dry, I dipped in VersaMark then Ultra Thick Embossing powder, heated, then did it again for super thick dimension. Lastly I flung (you know how I like flinging and smooshing peeps!) on some Hero Arts mist.

Once everything dried, I assembled the card and wrote a message inside in which yes, I did thank him for being okay with pink, hearts, and sparkle. HA!

Love that man of mine!

And don't forget, most of the products I used can be purchased at the a2z Etsy store, AND you can save 15% by using code: MicheleG15 and if they don't have something you are looking for, they do special orders - just ask!! Happy shopping.
