Anniversary Star

In two days my hubby and I will celebrate 28 years together.  I decided to combine three challenges to make his anniversary card and let him know he is the star of my life.

CASology: Star
Less is More: Anniversary
Color My Heart: Sweet Leaf & Twilight

The stamps are CTMH Shining Star (retired) and a very old wood mounted sentiment set which has no title on the side.

I embossed the star with clear powder then sponged Twilight from the center out and Sweet Leaf from the outer edges toward the center making sure to give my edges definition.  The ribbon was tied using a Bow Easy (after looking up a video tutorial on how to use it), wrapped with white waxy flaxy and tied into a bow, then topped with a button.  All of this was held in place with various layers of Glue Dots, Liquid Glass, and tape runners.

The sentiment banner was hand cut, sponged with Twilight, and the curled around a pen to get the wave.  I secured it with a thin strip of doubled sided foam mounting tape.

And here's my favorite picture of the two of us.  It was taken by a friend at Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs before we were transferred to Oklahoma.

Until next time,
