Celebrate 20 Years

Celebrate 20 Years

Stampin’ Up! is not the only one celebrating their 20th anniversary this year; my sister and her husband tied the knot 20 years ago this month. I discovered that emerald green and white are the colors traditionally associated with a 20th wedding anniversary. The closest I could come to emerald green was Wild Wasabi, a retired In Color, and I dug up some matching (also retired) patterned paper for this card.

The large sentiment from Celebrate Everything was inked up with a VersaMarker and white embossed. The smaller sentiment from Hugs & Wishes was stamped with Wild Wasabi ink on Whisper White card stock and punched out. I added the couple’s initials with a retired mini alphabet set.

Mary Jo Albright came up with this layout for the Weekend Sketch Challenge (WSC75). It was just what I needed!

Thanks for stopping by!
