Le Romantique Anniversary Card
We were away for the last two days, and although I had started on this card, I didn't have everything that I wanted to complete it.
So my husband volunteered to go and get them today...and while he was gone, I worked on the inside.
That's a Tim Holtz Stamp I used on the inside. Lots of inking on the edges as well.
The LOVE stamp on the front is also a Tim Holtz stamp. I used a transparency with a lace border underneath most of the front.
It turned out that my son and his wife made it to our place before my husband returned. They had called to say they were coming, so I threw together this little fan. I added the lace after my husband came home.
So...yes, I gave them the card...took it back...and gave it back to them.
And yes...they laughed at me.
Here's a photo of the whole card. If I'd had more time, I would have played a little more with the top middle.
But I figured I was pushing it already...and I didn't want them to think I was a perfectionist...even though that might be a little true.
Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!! :)
