Happy Anniversary

Today’s Retro Sketch #69 was perfect for this anniversary card I needed to make.  The couple that teaches our Sunday School class will celebrate their 41st anniversary on Monday, so I wanted to get a card made to take to church tomorrow.
Happy Anniversary
Here’s my card using an old Hero Arts stamp called Butterfly Fields.  I inked the top half of the stamp with Tumbled Glass distress ink, inked the bottom with Shabby Shutters, than added just a little bit of Peeled Paint at the very bottom.  Then I spritzed the stamp with some water before stamping on white cardstock.  I distressed the edges, sponged Antique Linen ink on all the pieces for a little shabbiness and embellished with some sheer ribbon and enamel dots.  The anniversary sentiment is from a My Time Made Easy stamp set, and the jumbo scallop border is from the Open Simply Scallops Trio Die-Namics.  I think this sketch is definitely a keeper!
Thanks for stopping by!  Happy stamping!
