Our 11th Wedding Anniversary and A Sketch

Today my husband and I celebrate our 11th Wedding Anniversary.  As a person who makes cards, this occasion is always a bit of a challenge for me.  How can I express my love for my husband through a card?  Well I usually spend hours working on it and end up feeling like it came out okay.  This year I did spend hours on the card but I think it came out really nice.    Here is the card I made for my husband....



Since my DH is not much for a fussy card I wanted to create something on the clean & simple side and I wanted it to be elegant.  So I enlisted the help of this week's Clean & Simple Stamping FTL112 sketch.  I really like the sketch.  It called for a square card but I really thought it looked good as 5.5 x 4.25 card.  I used Stampin Up's My Digital Studio for the sentiment and the heart.  There are exactly 11 pearls under the Happy Anniversary Sentiment.  What this card doesn't say is the music represents all the love songs that remind me of him and us.  This week my favorite is Smile by Uncle Kracker.  Scott you make me SMILE!

This is simply fabulous, I love the use of the music manuscript.
I think I may just have to 'case' this card sometime in the future... it's gorgeous.
