After All These Years....


You still hold the key to my heart! That is what the inside of this card says. This is for this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge hosted by Erin. Erin's daughter is turning 2 and she wanted us to use 2 colors + a neutral, 2 shapes, and 2 ribbons on our card. We could add other embellishments if we wanted. I made this card for our 26th wedding anniversary coming up this Thursday, I wanted something different with a lot of texture, what do you think? Did I achieve this? I used close to cocoa and this rust color paper with vanilla as my neutral. The ink is Tim Holtz tea dye, I died the reinforcement and the cord with this also. I used French Script background and pulled out Lexicon of Love too. (oldies but goodies)
The heart is a die run through the cuttlebug and then embossed. The Rust colored tag is embossed too but it's hard to see. I used ribbon and cord as my 2 ribbons and added this cute little key. Hope he likes it! Make sure you head over to the blog to see the other DT creations!
