Happy Anniversary!

I can't believe it's been four years already since I got married!  I generally don't make anniversary cards- because in the past we've gone on a big expensive vacation to celebrate our anniversary.  But this year we didn't, because we're saving up vacation days for when our house sells and we have to move (and because there's only so many places you can go that aren't a frozen tundra in January), so I thought a card was in order.

I used kraft cardstock for this card with a piece of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye "Love Me" 6x6 pad.  I also used a piece of off-white crinkle ribbon.  Then I cut two bears from Teddy Bear Parade at 3 inches and also cut their outfits.  Fair warning:  The bouquet on the bride bear is not for the faint of heart.  I had to take my glasses off and look really closely to figure out how it went together.

For the inside of the card, I added a strip of the same patterned paper.  Then I used two sentiments from Jaded Blossom's "Wedding Wishes" stamp set.  I'm still amazed at how well things stamp in Tuxedo Black ink.  Beautiful.
