WMSC#81:Anniversary #32!

Next week on the most romantic holiday of the year, Feb. 2nd, Groundhog's Day, my husband and I will be celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary.  So romantic, isn't it?  A couple days later we could have married on Valentines Day, but no, we just had to go for the groundhog.

My husband and I are not a gushy romantic couple.  Our cards to each other tend to be more funny than romantic, so this years card is going to really shock him.  He will never expect a card with cameos and little heart tags all over it.   Here is the sketch by Anya Schrier on which I based my card:
Here's my way out of my comfort zone anniversary card:


I used an ocean tides cardstock base,  My first layer is vintage cream stamped with PTI Background Basic Newsprint.  I stamped WM stamps Off Beat Backgrounds polka dot stamp all over the newsprint.  I think that makes some really pretty patterned paper.  I used a dark chocolate cardstock embossed banner for the mat.  The embossing folder is by Provo Craft and is called Cassie's Brocade.  It is such a pretty damask pattern.  The two cameos (which look nothing like my husband and I by the way) are from WM Cameo Creations.  I stamped them on some patterned papers by My Minds Eye, Lost and Found Portobello road collection.  I stamped it on a fleur de lis Spellbinder diecut and added a few little swirly images from WM Holiday Labels #14.  I added a couple hearts from WM Fancy Phrases.  I notched the sides to hang a little loop of twine and added 5 mini tags stamped with hearts and  tiny sentiments from WM Say It Loud.  The little pins the tags are dangling from are some hooks I originally say on Ashley Cannon Newell's blog.  I think my husband is going to wonder what got into me when he sees this card, but I love it.  Guess there is a romantic side to me still, even after 32 years!

This card is pretty, sweet and romantic. I hope DH realizes it is from you (haha) What care and detail you put into it. He is sure to appreciate it. Happy anniversary to you guys. 32 years is very impressive. He will see that you still have some surprises, yet, even after all this time.
