Special Anniversary Celebrations...It's Year #10!!

It is Don and Michele's 10th anniversary this year in the month of September, and I wanted to make them a special card celebrating them as a twosome!  A few years ago, my sister designed a card using Papertrey Ink's mason jar stamp and die set and the Autumn jar fillers.  She chose candied apples for her jar, and I absolutely loved this card with the Crystal Effects glazed apples.  

My re-created card would depict Don and Michele as a twosome in marriage; therefore, my sister's original sentiment, "Autumn Wishes," made it a fall card, but my card needed something different.  I chose new anniversary sentiment that would be a "play on words" referring to the two candied applies. . ."So Sweet Together."

My next creative addition to the card was an interior design that complimented the card front, and my final step was to compose a little anniversary verse celebrating their 10-year marriage.  I am really happy with the way my candied apple anniversary card turned out, and I think Don & Michele will enjoy it, along with their gift certificate for dinner out.  Happy Anniversary you two!  You are on my special people in my life list!
