Love


Awww...love is in the air!
Good friends of mine are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary!  I decided to make a romantic card for them.  I feel that butterflies, flowers and wrought iron gates fit that catagory!
The colors were inspired by the  CR84FN color challenge:


and the VLVAPR2012 Week One Sketch Challenge:


The DP's are Botanicals (Prima) and Rustic Cream (PTI). The large butterfly was made with a Spellbinders die and the smaller butterflies are made with a Martha Stewart punch. The beautiful gate was cut on my Cricut with the Ornamental Iron 2 Cricut cartridge. The sentiment is from a stamp set that I do not know the name of.



I can't wait to celebrate this special anniversary with my friends!

Thanks for stopping by!
