Wow! It's hard getting a picture uploaded tonight!
This is my card for the VSN Challenge: Falling in Love.
As many of my SCS friends know, my DH and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this past July -- except that we didn't celebrate, as I was in one state and he was in another. So I made this card for him, and I will give it to him when we do get to celebrate!
The black ribbon in the middle is supposed to be reminiscent of a garter like I wore on our wedding day.
I used Everyday Flexible Phrases -- one teeny stamp (but a BIG word with meaning for me!)! I love that set because you can make just about any sentiment you need or want!
It's dark now, so there are more shadows in the picture than I would like -- but I think you get the general idea of the card! Thanks for the challenge, Kim!

I love the embossed couple! I wish they still made Black Tie paper...one of my faves. The ribbon embellishments look great- did you really wear a black garter???? I like the picture composition with your rings on the left. You're good at this!

Wow, gorgeous card . . . touching story . . . and a beautiful display for your picture with just the right background and your rings at the side--nice touch!
I love how you stuck with black and white. This made it absolutely perfect!! Great job, and the ribbon does look like a garter in the center. I am sure it will bring back memories for your DH too! Congratulations on 25 years!!! That is awesome!
