More Anniversary Wishes

I told you I was working on another Anniversary card, and this one was for my husband for our anniversary. We celebrated 42 years last week. I had fun making this one. I started with a piece of CS from my DCWV's "Old World" stack. I then inked up my SU "Medallion" stamp with Tim Holtz' Distress Ink "Broken China" which I stamped off once and then stamped off the page a bit. I also sponged two different colors of Distress Inks on my Nestie background piece to match the colors in the CS and adhered this adorable picture from Crafty Secrets' "Childhood Images and Journal Notes," cut with a "Labels Three" Nestie as well. I once again sponged some creme-colored CS for the bottom with "Antique Linen" Distress Ink, and the sentiment is computer-generated with Santa's Sleigh font from "dafont.com". I adhered a piece of "Not Quite Navy" ribbon over the seam of the two pieces of CS and added some half-pearls. The inside uses the same font and another piece of CS from the "Old World" stack and looks like this.
