Happy Anniversary

Hello!  Beach days will be here soon!
Our son's and daughter-in-law's anniversary is coming up. Eight years . . . time flies!  They enjoy the beach, so that inspired my paper heart selections. 

My goal was to create the feeling of a
beach (sand at the bottom, sea, 
    sunset).  Jamie likes Disney movies, I was  able to find a small Nemo. The Happy Anniversary was stamped on a washed wood paper for the illusion of boardwalk. 

 The idea for this card was inspired by these 2 cards: My Life in Paper and Jennifer McGuire


Products used: 

  • Heart Die: Memory Triple Stitched Hearts
  • Sentiments (inside): My Sentiments Exactly & Taylored Expressions
  • Pattern Paper: assorted scraps 

Here is a look at the inside of the card.

The weather is getting warmer here. I'm looking forward to enjoying warm days at the beach. 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  Enjoy your day.
