Stampin'B Challenge - Anniversary Card

Anne Harmon (jdmommy) is the hostess for today's Stampin'Bs challenge. And she appropriately asked the team to make an anniversary card -- it's her 48th anniversary. Congratulations on 48 years of marriage, Anne!

Mark's Finest Papers' set Pears and Hollyhock is the perfect set for an anniversary. The sentiment "You make a fine pair" is so appropriate.

I used the smaller of the two pears in the set and stamped two of them. Using a Martha Stewart "around the corner" punch set, I created the border, which I sponged with Tim Holtz Distressed Wild Honey.

Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers - Pears and Hollyhock
Paper: Mark's Finest Papers - Snow Storm Smooth, Spring Leaf, Lemon Slice
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distressed Wild Honey
Accessories: Martha Stewart punches, Copic markers, Sponge dauber, Pop dots

Just eat your hearts out, everyone, because this beautiful card is already here at my house. DH and I have been enjoying it for a couple of days on the mantel in our den! Thanks so much, Lois, not only for making it, but sending it as well! Hugs!!
