Happy Anniversary!



My in-laws are celebrating their 52nd wedding anniversary this month.  Before I ran out to catch my flight yesterday (I'm traveling all week this week), I snuck in the craft room for an hour to make sure I had a card for them.  Pat's in charge of getting it to them!  My mother-in-law absolutely loves blue so I used blue Zig pens to make the stripes as well as the flowers before die cutting them. The leaves were already die cut so that made the card a bit faster to finish!

Entering this over at CAS(e) this Sketch.
