My card today uses this sweet sentiment from the Little Ones set. It's one of my favorite sentiments for anniversary cards and this one will be going to my hubby this December as we celebrate our 20th anniversary. Our wedding colors were blue and silver, so I embossed both the heart image and the sentiment in silver and added in some blue with Lindy's Magicals powders.  I cut the heart with the coordinating Little Ones Die Set and roughed up the edges just a bit.

The patterned paper is from the Hazy Days collection by 7 Dots Studio. I just loved the aged look to it... a little tattered, but still beautiful... just like our love after 20 years together.

Since our release ending up being later in the month than I originally had intended, I've extended our Anni-VERVE-sary sale through September 10. All previously released stamps, dies and sequins are 30% off and our new release is 20% off!

And if you decide you want the entire release, you can buy it all at a little additional savings!

The hop starts over on my blog, Poetic Artistry, so click on over for a fun little watercolor card set from me. See ya there!
