Happy Anniversary Baby

So...I am evolving in my understanding of how you can utilize a blog to simply share...

I just want to share how excited I am to be celebrating my tenth wedding anniversary with my one, my only, true love.  You have challenged me to expand my views and pursue my happiness.  You are my joy, my pain, my everything.  I love you so completely.

I am so in love and It just keeps growing stronger.

Make It Monday #110: Collage Elements

This was such a fun inspiring way to build a card.  I followed Dawn's method of figuring out where to place my sentiment.  I have been wanting to use this sentiment since my new Stylish Sentiments: Birthday arrived last month.  I then knew that I wanted to pull out my Rosie Posie set and use my step 2 stamps from the March release.  I chose some spring hues of aqua mist and harvest gold to go with smokey shadow as my neutral against stampers select white.  I used a card front in stampers select white and used background basics farm and barn chicken wire and background basics text style #2 in smokey shadow stamped off once to build my background as well as the frame in aqua mist from pretty peonies to highlight my rosie posie die cut flower focal point that is stamped in harvest gold with aqua mist shadow layers.  The leaves also blend into the background and draw the eye to the sentiment.  They are stamped in aqua mist.  Well, last but not least, I wanted to accent my front panel and help it stand out on the card front, so I stamped a strip of background basics: herringbone in smokey shadow and popped the card front up with dimensional adhesive (which I love using!)  Hope you like my card, can't wait to see what everyone else has come up with for this challenge.  My next step is to use this on a scrapbook layout, which I am way behind on!  Have a great spring day "peeps"!
