Better late than never...

Sunday was our 24th wedding anniversary and this is the card I made for Tim. Unfortunately, Saturday morning I discovered that my hard drive on my computer had crashed, so I was pretty preoccupied with that all weekend and didn't get to post this on Sunday when I wanted to.

This underwater scene is a single stamp from Sarasota Stamps that I colored with Copic markers while it was still in the Curved Rectangles die, to get the white border. I added some sparkle to most of the elements in the scene using Spica pens. The turquoise card stock was folded in half and cut using the largest Curved Rectangles die to create the card base.

For the inside of the card, I used the smaller curved rectangles dies to cut the sentiment panel and its mat. The mat paper was made using a background stamp from Stamp Camp and the sentiment is from Coronado Island Stamps.

Not a lot to it, but he liked it and the sentiment is perfect - after all these years, he's still the one I want for me! Happy Anniversary, honey! Love you!

Thanks for looking!
