Yes, this is another anniversary card, but no it's not for my hubby. It's for my parentals--43 years next week!
This paper was the back of the October Afternoon Daydream ledger paper I used for my card yesterday, and I was just in love with it. Not only that, but it's a perfect match for PTI's Aqua Mist. I stamped the flowers with Versamark and clear embossed. And then--then!!--I stamped the woodgrain onto Dark Chocolate with Versamark and clear embossed. The result was heavenly; I almost hated to cover it with the image panel (although I think my clear embossing powder has been tainted with some white, unless there's another explanation for the white specks that I'm unaware of).
And did you check out that fabulous burlap twine? Emily (aka Stampingout) was sweet enough to send me a bunch of it in different colors after I left a comment saying that I need to get some after seeing her wonderful rainbow card. Thanks again, Emily! The button was from PTI Ocean Tides stash, with the shank dremmeled off by DH. Punched the tag and stamped Happy Anniversary from PTI's Mixed Messages.

WOW! This is one stunning card! A dremmel tool?!? That is a great idea! I always curse those shanks on the back of flat buttons. Off to steal hubbies off his tool bench...I don't think he has used that thing in years!
Your card is going right into my favorites! :)
