Adore

Happy Monday!  This is a very special day for me.  It's the day I married my best friend, the love of my life, my soul mate.  After 13 magical years together my knees still go weak when he walks into the room.  And I still thank God each day that He gave me this perfect match.  Mark triumphs in my successes and carries me when I'm too weak to stand alone.  He pushes me to be the best I can be and picks up the slack when I fall short.  He's my # 1 fan and I couldn't imagine my life without him.  My life is truly blessed and I am a better person for knowing him!  So this card is for the man I adore... my husband, Mark.
 
The layout is this week's Mojo sketch {Mojo170} and I knew I wanted to pull out this Lost & Found paper I've been hoarding.  It's vintage and masculine, but still swirly and beautiful, too!  :)  I started by cutting the paper so the ADORE part of it would show, then I stamped a couple hearts from the Text Objects set on dp, cut out and used the scraps to make a fan, by scoring every 1/4" and folding accordion style like a rosette, but leaving unfinished like a fan.  I stamped the sentiment from Text Objects inside the stamped Vintage Oval Frame, then added some german glass glitter from the Holiday Glitzy pack by TCP around the frame and on the prima flower.  It's so sparkly!!!  There's a bit of brown lace underneath all that and I gave everything a good sponging with some Vintage Photo distress ink.

Well, there you have it!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to head on over to the Mojo Monday blog for this week's sketch!  Have a fantastic day!

What a fabulous anniversary card! Congratulations on your thirteen years of marriage! Well done, marriage is hard work. It must not feel like it with such dedication :)

Dawn Easton said...

Happy Anniversary to you and Mark! What a beautiful piece you wrote about him...I can see that love you have for one another!

Gorgeous card!

Luanne said...

I know exactly how you feel, I married one of those guys too... I wish you a wonderful blessed anniversary (even though it's a day late..flu bug here). Your card is so special, and I know he loved it, about half as much as he loves you. TFS!

Kristin Bueter said...

First of all, your card is stunning! I love that you created a fan for the circular layer and adhered a prima on top. So pretty! Your paper is perfect for your card and the occasion. Love how you made sure "Adore" would show prominently on the front.

Second, you put a huge lump in my throat when I read what you wrote about your husband. I believe that for those of us who don't have that type of relationship, long to. Thank you for inspiring me in two different ways this morning.

Happy anniversary to you and your soul mate, Mark ♥
