Happy Anniversary

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Well the big news on the East Coast is the earthquake that registered 5.9. The epicenter was in Virginia but we felt the after shocks here in the Pittsburgh area Tuesday afternoon.

My husband had just come in from work and was sitting in his recliner watching TV and the chair started moving.
The after shocks that happened here weren't enough to cause any structural damage though. We don't have earthquakes here so this was a big happening.
Well onto my card for today. I made this one for the sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers. Our hostess, Roxie, provided a great layout for us to work into a card. 

I wanted to make an anniversary card for a friend of mine. Just need to make sure I get it in the mail.

I dug into my stash for some patterned paper and card stock. I decided to go with a pink & green card. I like the way these colors complement each other.

The anniversary sentiment is from a Verve stamp set. I also used the cuttlebug embossing folder- birds and swirls. A pink satin ribbon and a flower and pearl center completed my card.

It's time to dim the light in charmed life land for another day. So until next time.......God bless
