Hope You Can Cling To Challenge 14

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well yesterday was a wonderful day in our household. We celebrated our 25th (silver) wedding anniversary.

My thoughtful husband put together quite the gift for me. He made-yes I said made- 25 cards with a memorable event from the past 25 years. He bought precut silver metallic note cards and then added his own embellies. I will take photos and show them. All my crafting is rubbing off on him (lol).

He bought a wedding ring frame and had it engraved with a 25th anniversary and he wants us to put our wedding photo on one side and a current photo on the other. I loved the idea.

He packed all of this in a beautiful vintage box with the number 25 up in the corner. He has given me some thoughtful gifts over the years but this one is by far the best.

Now onto my card for today. This one is another I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. This is challenge 14 hosted by Theresa. She wanted us to make a card that features text in some way.

I found this great Stampin-Up "attic boutique" designer paper in my stash. It was so perfect for this challenge. I used it as my background panel.

The designer paper colors are soft suede, daffodil delight and pool party. So I went with those colors for my card.

My layout is from Jen's deconstructed sketch #74.

The sentiment is from Stampin-Up's "curvy verses" set. Punched a daisy and some butterflies to complete my card.

Well that's it for me today. Time to travel over to meet my grandsons school bus. God bless.......

Some other challenges:
1.  Addicted to Stamps and More has a flowers challenge.
2.  Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge is lots of layers.
3.  Simon Says Stamp has a thinking of you/sympathy challenge.
