Happy Anniversary To Me!! (and my DH too!)

Today is our 20th anniversary! I am very blessed to be married to my best friend (and to be married to a very easy going guy with a lot of patience!) This is the card I made for him (I know it's not a typical romantic card, but trust me, it suits him and US!) I got the stamps form Our Craft Lounge about 2 weeks ago but they are not showing up on the site now. I don't know if they are just sold out and they pull them off of the site when they are out of stock, or what....

I put a few subtle swirls on the main panel before stamping the sentiment and then doing the cracked glass technique, but I think they may be too subtle - they aren't showing up in the picture at all! I also think this may be the first card that I haven't colored with Copics since February (when I got them!!)

The Details:
Stamps: For-bitten - Our Craft Lounge
Paper: Basic Grey; Basic Black, Very Vanilla - SU
Ink: Dew Drops Brilliance Lightning Black, DD VersaMagic Wheat, DDVM Sahara Sand, DDVM Jumbo Java
Misc.: Brads, Martha Stewart Web punch, velvet ribbon from fabric store.

Have a wonderful day!
:-) Traci

Congratulations to you and your husband. 20 years! How special is that!. My DH and I will also be celebrating our 20th anniversary in a couple of weeks time. He is finally on his way home tonight from serving in the Middle East. I'm so excited, the butterflies are doing somersaults in my stomach. I love everything you create. xo Jackie

Happy A-versary Traci and DH!! That is so awesome, now you have to change the info on your profile. ;) This card is so romantic and wonderful. I love that sentiment you used! I do believe that they probably removed it from their store once you bought it. Just because no one else stands a chance once Traci creates with it. LOL! ;) Have a wonderful day together, you sound like a happy couple indeed - a breath of fresh air!

Congratulations to you both.
20 years of marriage is a longtime but for those that have found their life partner it's just a number.

Your children will benefit from your love for each other and you are certainly a role model for the rest of the community.
Congratulations again.
love Amanda

Congrats on 20 years! My DH and I just celebrated 13 yrs on 8/10, but we've been together for 22 yrs. How lucky are we to have found our soulmates so soon in life?
BTW, LOVE your card! I always look at your cards close-up and as usual this one is impeccable! I really like the webbing and the crackle effect (it shows up on close inspection).
