Happy Anniversary!

I want to start off by apologizing to all of my followers out there in blogger land.  I have fallen quite behind in posting my projects.  Good news... I still took photos of all of them so I'll be catching up quickly. 

Today's post is an anniversary card I made for my grandparents.  I used my favorite stamps and dies from Jaded Blossom.

I used the tree and birds from the Jaded Blossom Simple Sayings stamp set. 
This was a quick card to put together but I was impressed on how it came out. 
The striped paper with the swirl is from a DCWV stack and I just used blue stickles to add to the tree and around the edges.  I finished it off with white stitching around the border.

I didn't want to overpower the front of the card by adding a sentiment. 
So.... I tried something a little different. 
I used the Jaded Blossom Flag Die and cut out matching paper with the front of the page.
I then used a sentiment from Simple Sayings 2 and topped it off with stitching to match the front.

The paper was a little shiny so the camera caught a little glare.

I hope you liked it, I heard rumor my grandparents did :)

~ Enjoy~
