Anniversary 22 - Love You, Always!

Today is our 22nd Anniversary, and we got married right before I turned 22! Who would have thought then that those next 22 yrs. would be filled with so many memories. 

If someone were to ask me what it takes to keep a marriage together, I would have to say it is a recipe of supporting each other's passions, love and respect, meeting somewhere in the middle on those things that you don't agree on, doing random acts of kindness for one another and making each other laugh.

This is the card I made for my sweetie, Dan, for our anniversary. I tried one cool idea with my trimmer, using the scoring blade to fold the pink accent card stock as well as to make the patterned lines. I was able to tuck my flourish inside the small pocket that I created. The beaded heart was done with chipboard, tombow adhesive and pink & white seed beads from Stampin' Up! I also used the four flower border from A Beautiful Thing set along with dbl-sided Berry Bliss designer paper in the background. The Always clip is from Making Memories
