To the Best Husband!



Two years ago, I was blessed to marry my best friend! I really can say, that I have never regretted it for even one second. Besides being one of the sweetest men that has ever walked on this earth - I have to say how amazing it is that I can completely be myself around him. We can laugh together, cry together , dream together and we will grow old together. Every day my life is better because of you! Richard, I love you will all of my heart!

Now that everyone has shared my sentimental day, I'll tell you a little bit about my card. I wanted to enter this in the JustRite challenge - which was a color challenge. And, in all of my tons of designer paper, I just didn't have anything that fit the bill. So, I used my Parisian Anthology papers from Pink Paislee, and Glimmer Misted them to match the challenge. Then, I used some of Faber-Castell's gelatos to stamp the small flowers onto my background paper. The stamp is from JustRite's Fancy Labels set. I also used the gelatos to add more intense or contrasting colors around the resist designs. My sentiment is from Baroque Nested Frames and Sentiments. Finally, I got to use one of JustRite's exclusive Spellbinders die, Nested Sentiments to cut my frame and photo corners.

Thanks for looking!
