Happy Anniversary

Today is my parents’ wedding anniversary.  Forty-two years, to be exact!  In honor of the occasion, I put together a card for them using a neutral color (SU’s River Rock) for the base that I don’t choose very often.  I grabbed it again after using it for Dynamic Duos’ current color challenge.  I decided I should practice using it because it really is a nice color!

Colors:  SU’s Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, River Rock, white

I wanted to create a zig zag (a.k.a. chevron) stripe to go along with the heart. Since I didn’t have an actual chevron stripe die, I cut two strips of cardstock using the Pinking Border Die from The Cat’s Pajamas and staggered them back to back.

Have yourself a great Tuesday!
