My parents celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary a little while ago and my younger brother asked me to coordinate a gift for them (he lives in another province).  His generous gift was a service from a company that does not do gift cards so I made a gift certificate and matching card  (so easy to make the certificate coordinate with the card!)

I was on a bit of a Basic Grey PP kick at the time so the paper I chose dictated the colours of the card (usually, I pick the stamp I want to use and go from there).  Green and pink were pretty safe colours for an anniversary card and this was the end result:

I blurred out my brother and sister-in-law’s names as well as what the gift was as it’s not really my story to share.  I recently purchased a set of Doodlebug stamps while at Zellers (I was surprised to find them there) and thought they were perfect for an anniversary card – a nice change from my standbys of the lovebirds stamp and my little bride and groom stamp.   It’s hard to find cute “love” stamps but these Doodlebug ones fit the bill.  Incidentally, I’m not sure why my picture is so grainy.  I must have had the camera on a weird setting.  The card was long gone before I downloaded the pictures off of my camera so there was no “do over”.

Supplies used: Doodlebug stamps, Mellow Moss and Regal Rose CS, Neenah smooth CS, Basic Grey PP, punches, classic inks, watercolour brush.
