Anniversary Card for My Hubby

My husband and I will be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary at the end of the month, we will be taking a 1 week trip to Naples, Florida (stopping in Savannah and Orlando on the way) to celebrate.  This will be our first time away from the girls and our first time away from all of them for so long.  Luckily my Mom is coming to stay at our house to take care of everyone.  I wanted to make my hubby's card this year so I decided to go ahead and get that out of the way.

I just picked up my Art Philosophy-Close to My Heart bundle over the weekend and KNEW it would be perfect.  I used the chip board accents for the banner, I then cut out the paper to go on top from the cartridge.  Next I used some stamps I received as a part of my purchase (love FREE stamps).  Those stamps were A Typeface for the I and U, Pair-a-Phrase for the heart and Frames, Tags and Borders set for the U and me 4 ever ticket (I cut the paper out using the cartridge).  Although the color combo is not something I would normally do I had already gone with the yellow and orange before I decided I wanted a pattern paper and I found this heart paper in a DCWV stack I had (thanks Steph) called Madly in Love so I wanted to use it and I think it all works.

I inked the banner by rubbing a cottonswab with in over it and rubbed the edges, just so it did not look so "clean", I used red stickels for the heart and I used my recollections heart edge punch on the bottom. 

I hope my hubby loves it (along with his new smoker grill :)  TFL.
