Anniversary Card for my Husband

Today is your seventh wedding anniversary (although we have been together for 18 years).  I borrowed a stamp from my sister.  I knew I wanted it when I saw it in the Close to My Heart catalogue but my sister bought it, so I didn't have to.

I've been trying to think of ways to use black more as a base for cards.  I knew I wanted to use dark colours for this one to try and make the red really pop.  (My red ink is not the strongest though... maybe I should have embossed it.  Oh well!)  I do like how it turned out.  I really wanted this love-based card to not be frilly and girly.

I used some scraps from the two wedding albums I've worked on recently (one being mine - yes - STILL - after 7 years!)  I based this card on a sketch (but I can't find it now).

My husband is a definite keeper!  He's always thinking of me first - all day every day.  He has triple the energy I do - works all day (often more hours than I do) and does a lot more around the house than I do.  He takes extremely good care of me.  We are total opposites in all the little details but similar at heart in the ways that matter.  Our divergent details help us to balance each other out.  Without him, I would be completely off-kilter!

I do truly adore him!
