belated anniversary wishes.

My hubs and I celebrated 9 years married on February 22nd - but we hardly said 2 words on the matter that day... the whole family was sick, and he was headed off to Toronto for a few days, so we decided to keep the lovey-dovey-ness for another day...

Now that we're good and celebrated (!), I thought I'd share the card I made for the love of my life.

My favorite thing about this card is the card-base.  I stared out with a white folded card, and stamped the feather image from "lovestruck" all over.  I then stamped the hero arts "envelope pattern" background over the entire thing, and went to work with some distress inks.  To highlight the feathers, I went back in with an aquapainter and fresh snow ink and painted each feather.  It is so soft and pretty!  Just in case you wonder, the sentiment is computer-generated...

Thanks for peeking!


  1. Happy Anniversary. And many many more. Your card is just beautiful, and I'm glad you finally got to celebrate.

  2. Belated anniversary wishes to you both. I hope all are feeling much improved. Your card is beautiful. It is so nice to see the large grommit. I do love them and hardly ever see them anymore. Bring back the grommit hard, I say! I adore the very romantic color combination too. Very ethereal. Lovely work as always.

  3. so soft, so beautiful!
    Happy Anniversary to the both of you ;-)

  4. Oh, this is so pretty! Not the best word for a man's card, but I can't help but use it... it's soft and gorgeous!

  5. This is so pretty, Elena! I love how you used the keys with the happy trails feathers in the background!
    Happy Belated Anniversary!
