31 years is not a long time!

Wednesday was our anniversary, we've been married 31 years. Funny, I think I look old in the mirror, but he is 10 years older than me, and I think he looks young and cute!

I wasn't going to make a card~ we generally do not do gifts and cards to each other~ but this week there was a conversation over on the Papertrey forum about not showing cards that are copies. The problem with not showing them is that the original maker never knows how something they did inspires others!

Anya made this beautiful, perfect anniversary card~ be sure and go see it here- and be sure and leave her a comment! I had to take the opportunity to make it and show Anya how much I admired it! The only thing different I did was added the heart square from Quilters Additions, and made little points on the sentiments to make it more like a banner-

Here's my inside, from Out On a Limb Sentiments.

All products PTI, made just like Anya said to!

Dark Chocolate, Kraft, Vintage Cream and Sweet Blush CS

Dark Choclate and Sweet blush ink (also some Linen Distress on the edges of the banner and quilt squares)

Sweet blush buttons, Fiskars threading Water punch

I agree about it being nice to give credit to the person who inspired your card!

Great card.
