“Royal” Anniversary

April 29th, 2011 · 7 Comments

"Royal" Anniversary

William and Kate picked a wonderful date to get married: my sister’s 22nd wedding anniversary! Thirty years ago, Charles and Diana chose to get married on my parents’ 20th wedding anniversary. The apple does not fall far from the tree!

Of course I wanted to make a “royal” anniversary card for my sister and her dear husband this year. Luckily I had recently purchased this Lovely Labels 3 stamp set from Gina K. Designs, which includes a couple of crown images. I found a fitting background paper in BasicGrey’s Ambrosia collection.

Best wishes to William and Kate, and to Linda and Roel!
