Happy Anniversary!

Twenty five years ago today, my dear brother and sister in law got married. Now, I wasn't at the wedding, as I didn't meet Fran until more than ten years later, but I must have been there in spirit!

We celebrated their big day this past weekend with a lovely lunch. It was so nice to celebrate such a special couple who I love so dearly! Here is the card that I made for them. Patty loves Webster's Pages, so I knew she'd like a card made with the new Hollywood Vogue line.

I fan folded the paper at the top. Then, I stitched a piece of the netting and added it to the little fan with a sparkler. The silver trim and bookplate all add to the 'Silver Anniversary' theme.

I created another something for them, but I can't post it quite yet. So, I'll share another anniversary card.

This one appeared in Paper Crafts' Card Style in the Shabby Chic section. I love all of the antique goodness on here.

I used some vintage buttons, lace and sheet music on here. I love using those on my cards!

So, Happy Anniversary, Fred and Patty! Love you guys! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
