20th Anniversary

This past week my husband and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary! Before I made a card I searched blogland for some inspiration and found it in the current Muse, Anita Bowden. From her beautiful, soft card I used the white embossing, the watercoloring, the colors, and the messy thread. I'll show you her card first:

And here is mine:

Stamps: Hero Arts (chevron), SSS (sentiment)
Dies: Memory Box (large numbers), SSS (banner)

Only after it was done, I realized that with the pastel colors (even though, I used mostly blue), the messy thread, and the pink heart gems, it wasn't a very masculine card... I am happy to report that my husband took it in stride!

Oh that is cool!! Love the embossed numbers and the pretty colors you used. Congratulations on your 20th anniversary!! That is a milestone these days!!

Happy 20th...nice milestone too, and congrats to the 2 of you for making it that far. Your card is lovely, and I think chevrons are a bit masculine. Real men aren't scared of pastel anyway! I love the thread and the subtle coloring, and the big bold embossed number. Your DH was smart enough to know how special it was!!! TFS & Hugs

First of all, Happy 20th Anniversary! That is a huge milestone! Your card is magnificent! It might not be the most masculine, but it's the message that matters and besides, you nailed Anita's MUSE card and I'm predicting this as a winner!! Hugs, Darnell

Hallo Susanne, erst mal herzlichen Glückwunsch zu euren 20 gemeinsamen Jahren!
Deine Karte ist super geworden, finde das der touch pink richtig gut dazu passt! der chevron Hintergrund ist spitze!

Michele Kovack said...

Love both cards with their pretty pastel color scheme! Happy Anniversary!

Dora B. said...

I am catching up on my blog reading tonight. Belated congrats on your anniversary. I think the chevrons add a masculine touch ... Was it a stencil?

Siehst du Susanne, wenn wir verliebt sind, dann sehen wir das Leben in Rosa und dein Mann ist verliebt in dich und darum fand auch er die Karte toll! ;) ...und mit den Chevrons im Hintergrund hat sie ja doch was männliches! Mir gefällt sie sehr gut!
Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu eurem 20sten Hochzeitstag!
