Leaves of a Tree and 20th Anniversary

This past Wednesday, my husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. Here's a card I made for him. I can’t believe it has been 20 years but I would marry him all over again, love you honey.

I used the “Leaves of a Tree” A’ la Carte Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini as the main focal point of the card. The sentiments is from the Word Play Stamp Set. The color combo is More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Soft Suede and Naturals Ivory.

Remember the homemade Stamp Pad that I made the other day. Here is where I used the stamp pad to stamp the tree and sentiments. I also used some of the leftover pieces from the Day of Gratitude Notecard Bag for the inside of the card. September is a popular month for weddings in our house, my parents also celebrated their wedding anniversary on Monday, so the card below is my parent’s card, slightly different.

I used the Card Sketch 219 from Stampin 411, they always have great sketches.
