For You...A Simple Card That Says It All

On Nov 10th, 2012 my husband and I celebrated 11th wedding anniversary.  It was bitter sweet as he was in Afghanistan, our first time being separated on our special day.  So with that in mind, I made him a card to fit our "time" apart and mailed it to him. He now says it is sitting by his computer at his "office" in Kabul.  I got inspiration from a card I saw in a magazine.

I used a simple geometric design to keep the card masculine, but added the Prima flower for a feminine touch of our time together.  The 11 squares represent the 11 years of marriage, and the flower is one to grow on.  I used the clock papers from Teressa Collins to show our time, a great way to use clock paper or clock stamps like the Vintage Finds stamp from Teresa Collins and to show the time you spent doing something.
