Today is our anniversary.  So I am sharing the card I made for my husband.  I struggle sometimes with masculine cards, and a special one is especially difficult for me.



I bought the Rustic Retreat stamp set as a Winter / Christmas set to use.  But when I was looking for the set for the anniversary card, I stumbled upon it and pulled it out.  After considering, I decided it would work perfectly.  At first I stamped the animals together with trees in the background.  But it just did not feel right.  So back to the paper trimmer and this was the result.  A totally different layout than I started with!

When I searched for the proper background, I was looking for greens to match the grass in the animal squares.  I couldn’t find what I liked, so then just went through all of the designer series paper.  I found this piece, believe it or not, on the back side of one of the Come Sail Away DSP sheets.  I don’t know if it’s supposed to be coral or something underwater.  But I feel like it works perfectly.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will return on Monday for another new project.  Hope you can get some stamping in this weekend!!  I am planning on it!
