Happy Anniversary!

Good morning everyone! Today is my daughter and son-in-law's wedding anniversary, and it also happens to be my birthday.......shh, don't tell anyone! Here's the card I made for them both, I have used sketch FTL129 from the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. My card is not so CAS though, I wanted to use the Kaisercraft 'After Five' papers, so I've added a few extra layers to my card. The damask stamp behind the sentiment is also from the Kaisercraft 'After Five' stamp set. The sentiment is made up from 2 different stamps, I used the 'Anniversary' from a Fire Cracker Designs set and the 'Happy' is from a Vicki Enkoff 'Happy Birthday' stamp.

The blingy butterfly and the black label die-cut are cut from a pad of glitter sheets by Craft Bug, I found this at Lincraft a little while ago and promptly forgot I had it! The sheets aren't too thick so I could use my Martha Stewart butterfly punch without too much trouble.

Stampin' Up Basic Grey cardstock, Pedigree Paper black and silver cardstock.
Kaisercraft 'After Five' 6 x 6 Paper Pad and stamp set.
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch and Border Punch.
Nestabilities Labels dies.
Craft Bug glitter sheets.
Annabelle Stamps Sprinkles (bling)
Ribbon and sparkly thread from my stash.

We had a family celebration for our birthday/anniversary on Saturday night and my husband is also taking me out for dinner tonight for my birthday.....I feel very spoiled!

Hope you are having a wonderful day too!
