40th Wedding Anniversary Card

Hello everyone,

I think I mentioned a little while ago that my husband and I would be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary today, and that I would be scheduling a number of posts this month because we are away a lot, and this is one of them. I thought that I would share the card I made for my kind and patient other half and as it is a 40th Anniversary, I had to use a ruby colour, so my favourite Papertrey Ink Scarlet Jewel card and ink came to the rescue!


The cute main image is from a stamp I have had for years, but I can't tell you what it is because a while ago I removed all my wood backed rubber stamps from their bases and then promptly lost the list I made saying what they are! If any of you can help with identifying it, I would be very grateful.
The dies are from My Favorite Things Blueprints 3 set and the other stamps are from Papertrey Ink With all my Heart set. I added some silvery sparkle to the moon, but it doesn't show up well on the picture. It makes me think of the song - "By the light, of the silvery moon, I love to spoon, with my honey ......etc". But that will be showing my age again I suppose!

Short and sweet today but I should get back to normal at the end of next week.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges





Thanks for stopping by.
