HYCCT1531 ~pocket full of love~

Happy Saturday to all my Blogger friends on this fine November morning. Today is my wedding anniversary.
The day is cool just like it was on my wedding day 28 years ago but there is no sunshine today. Not yet anyways.
I remember the joy and happiness that was in my heart back in 1987. The love of my life was about to become my husband. We made a commitment to each other that day before God and man to love each other till death do us part.  
We determined early on in our relationship that divorce was not an option. We would have to work out our problems no matter what they were. So my advice to any young couple is to keep the lines of communication open and talk through your issues and always give grace to your spouse. You have to be willing to overlook their faults if you want yours overlooked.
That being said let's move on to the card I have for today. This one was made for a dual purpose. It was for another of the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers and also for my hubby for our anniversary.
For the HYCCT challenge, Lydia is our hostess and she wants us to incorporate a single, hand-drawn line (any color) on our project, and you have to have another element of your card crossing it.

I was searching through my stash the other night for something when I saw this paper pack by Basic Gray and it was filled with embellishments for a card. Oh yes my lucky day.

I cut layered and assembled my card added some silver studs (that didn't photo well) and red vellum corner elements. I used an MFT die to cut my hearts. And to complete my card, I drew the line through the sentiment per the challenge requirement.
I just gave the card to my hubby and he liked it. He is such a big supporter of my work and often gives me feedback on layout, embellishments etc. I trust his opinions because he has an eye for design.
Well, it's time to close this post and get ready for our day together. So until next time Blogger friends......God bless.
