We may not have it altogether...
"We may not have it altogether... but together we have it all! Shhhh...don't tell my husband but this is the card I've made him for our 6th anniversary which is coming very soon. The inside of the card shows the rest of the sentiment.
I knew I wanted to use this stamp and sentiment for my card for him but it wasn't until I saw to challenge blogs that my layout and design came to mind. This week's OUR CREATIVE CORNER challenge is to make a card using buttons and brads. This worked out perfectly for this stamp and sentiment!
And then on Julee's blog, POETIC ARTISTRY this week's Mojo Monday 43 layout sketch challenge seemed to fit this image to a "T".
I just love this stamp image and the sentiment too. Both the stamp image and sentiment stamp are from HEATHER's STAMPING HAVEN in Ottawa, Ontario. I watercolored the image with Tombow markers. I added just a touch of stickles glitter glue here and there for a tad of sparkle.
Whew...I managed to work two challenges as well as finishing my husband's anniversary card all in one card. Hope he likes it.
