Blooming Love


As I look out my window today and see over a foot of white fluffy snow, I reminisce about the times my husband and I have attempted to celebrate our anniversary only to be sidetracked by blizzards. We often end up with a cozy evening at home.

Today's card was based on the sketch at Skipping Stones Designs. I decided to try out the fabulous layering techniques that Maile Belles uses for the Wee Memories Challenge and Moxie Fab World is still celebrating their Card Creations Week, so this is my entry into the Love category.

Cardstock: (Vintage Cream) PTI 
Patterned Paper: (Basics Cream) Basic Grey
Stamps: (Ever After) Wplus9
Ink: (Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress) Ranger
Embellishments: (Ivory String) May Arts, (Button)
Tools: (Labels 4 Nestabilities) Spellbinders, (Corner Chomper) WR Memory Keepers

    It might have been genius to marry when there was a chance that most years would find you snowed in and snuggled.

    I definitely love this card Karen. Excellent!
