It's a Seventh Anniversary!

My son, Mark, and his lovely wife, Ginger, celebrated their seventh anniversary on July 22nd.  It is truly surprising that seven years have passed since that happy event!  After thinking about what kind of a card I wanted to make for them, I remembered a card I made while at our Mom/daughter Mt. Shasta crop/ retreat this spring that seemed perfect for them.  

This card is another of the "make-it-yourself" card kits designed by my sister, Heidi Gonzales ( from a few years ago.  She re-designed it a bit from the original just for me because she knows I like cards larger than the A2 size (4-1/4" x 5-1/2").  I re-positioned a few of the embellishments a bit to please my own creative eye with the larger size, but essentially it is most definitely similar to the original.  I then designed the inside and put in a verse to coordinate with the outside sentiment about love growing in a happy home.  I hope Mark and Ginger like their anniversary card!

Recipe:  SU cardstocks: Marina Mist, VeryVanilla. Soft Suede; PTI: Fall Prints Plaid, Holiday Flourishes & Swirls Dots (red); Stash: Green dots. SU Ink:  Marina Mist, Old Olive. PTI dies: Celebrations Frame, Fillable Frames #11, Love Lives Here die/stamp set (sentiment, house, hearts).  SU Perfect Polka Dots EF. Hug Snug Gabardine Green seam binding ribbon (really-it's actually more of a blue!). Clear heart button, hemp twine.
