Our 20th Anniversary, a Tri Shutter card for Bruce

Happy Anniversary to us :) We made it to a glorious 20 years.

(We've both been married before, so it's more like Bruce's 50th and my 35th LOL) It's a very long story, but I can't express how joyous I am to have 20 loving years with this man!

The ship is a free digi from the internet. The map panels are also free digis of a world map found on the internet. I just enlarged and printed it, then cut out pieces to fit and distressed it a bit with distress inks. All the stamped shells, fish & stars are from JustRite stamps. The sentiment is typed and printed. It's extremely heartfelt to me, and what I used to tell Bruce long before I knew it was a sentiment.

I painted the ship with Broken China distress ink first, then Perfect Pearls (plain white pearl) and water. The border outlines were drawn with a gold Sharpie marker. I used some Vintage Paper distress ink around the ship oval and the sentiment, then tipped around with Perfect Pearls in gold mixed with water. I used Memento Rich Cocoa to stamp the ocean critters.

Finished up with some gold nail head stickies by Mark Richards and a golden anchor charm tied on with some twine. Bazzill cardstock.

  3. A very happy 20th anniversary! (we have a 50th coming in July!) These are huge milestones, and I hope you two had a very special day. Your card is lovely, and I'm impressed with what you did with digi files to create this beautiful card. Loved your sentiment, and I'm sure your hubby did as well. And that you made it especially for him. I'm glad the 2 of you found each other. And I wish you many more years of happy togetherness! TFS & Hugs

  6. First of all I wish you a very happy anniversary. And, secondly, that card is fantastic! Wonderful elements and great distressed look to your masculine sea themed card. And, I love the sentiment. That fits perfectly for a card of love! We will have our 44th in October and to me, it doesn't seem that it should be that many years already. But I guess numbers don't lie. LOL
