Happy Anniversary!

By the time this posts, I will be on the road with my hubby, to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary! Tomorrow marks the day, and Bruce has made all of the arrangements, keeping it a secret! No idea what's in store!

I made his card several weeks ago. My good friend Dawn posted a Free 4 All challenge on SCS, calling for the use of puns. Since Bruce loves puns and uses them more than I can handle, I thought I'd send one his way!

The card base is crumb cake, and I added cherry cobbler dsp and always artichoke card stock, embossed with the perfect polka dots in my big shot. I liked the contrast of the horizontal stripes and the dots. The main image is long retired, from Please Be Seated, colored with blender pens to coordinate with the real life color scheme of our den, and popped up with dimensionals. I added twine and a big designer button from the Holiday Mini. The sentiment is from Flexible Phrases, with regals brads. I outlined the phrases in cherry cobbler for contrast without more weight. This is a fat card!! LOL

Gotta finish packing!

  3. Kim,

    What a great card. I have to admit that it took me a moment to get the pun. I just kept thinking of how I too love my sofa. Then I got it...duh. Like I said, adorable.


  4. This is adorable.. Came out great! I love the way you colored it!

  5. This is so adorable! Love the colors and that big button. I also really like how you did the cut out words for the sentiment. Happy (belated) Anniversary, by the way! :)
