Bordering on Romance Anniversary card
This is the card I gave my husband on our Anniversary earlier this week. Silly me, I didn't realise the sentiment was not straight until I looked at the scan. Oh well, he still like it, after all he knows I am slightly off also. I saw this card and knew it was the one I wanted to make (with a few modification, of course). I took my color coach to my husband and asked him to pick one color for his card, anything but a brown or green, since the color he picked would be the color of the flower on his card. He picked Rose Red. I changed the card from square to the standard A2 invitation size, changed the sentiment, added pearls to all three flowers, used smaller pearls as the accents. I also changed the embossing folder. Since I was using Rose Red instead of the pink she used, I changed my secondary color from Crumb Cake to River Rock. I size larger of the Framelit Labels Collection Dies. If I made it again, I would go with the smaller.
