Wonderful Years

Good day my fabulous blogging friends.
  
Hope the weather is better where you are.
We are expecting rain for the next 6 days....at least it's not snow :)
I fear for folks on the Eastern seaboard with superstorm Sandy heading
their way....say safe everyone.

Today I'm showing you the card I made for my DH for our 42nd Wedding Anniversary which was this past Wed.  Now with this number of anniversaries, he's had a card from every colour of the rainbow, except pink...so I needed to change that!    I wanted something pretty to represent the beautiful years we've had together.....we are so blessed.  Ok enough gushing!
 ..here's the card.

These birds work great for an anniversary card, so does your loads of pinks! Who says a man can't handle pink :) Love the little heart shaped tag that you've partly hidden behind the image, and the diagonal placement of the sentiment is a nice detail too. All in all a lovely card, I bet you've put much heart and consideration into this one!
