Hi all! Happy Wednesday! I have the card I made for my husband for our anniversary. The funny thing was on Saturday I hadn’t made a card yet and he told me I could cheat and buy one. I really didn’t want to do that so I started going through my stash of colored images. The Paper Shelter has this adorable Love in Venice image, which I had to have since we took our honeymoon in Venice, Italy. We had a delayed honeymoon and by the time we went, I was pregnant with our daughter. Unfortunately, I was extremely sick and have too many memories of getting sick in the Grand Canal. However, we did manage a gondola ride without me getting sick — I credit eating a lot of gelato with making that happen. LOL!
I wasn’t sure how this was going to come together, but I really like it. The designer papers are from Authentique Journey — they matched up perfectly with my blues. However, I couldn’t find any actual blue cardstock to go with these colors. Too blue, too green, too completely far off. Basic Black and Kraft paired up really nicely. I matted my image on a pair of intertwined lacey circle nesties. A pretty blue bow, sentiment from PTI Mega Mixed Messages and some rhinestones finished it off.
