40th Anniversary

We took a little break and drove to Chattanooga Tenessee and then spent a day driving through the Great  Smokey Mountains, it was just Beautiful, I will have to share some photo's later.  Of course when we got back there was alot of catching up to do, and then yesterday I was going to post but we had some storms go through and our power was knocked out for a little while, by the time it came back on we needed to get ready to head to our Daughter and Son in laws house about an hour away, they invited us up for the celebrations and to see the fireworks in their town, for being such a small town they put on one of the best shows we have seen.  On with the card :)

My Brother and Sister in law are celebrating their 40th Anniversary.  They are Missionaires in the Ukraine, so hopefully I didn't get too bulky with this card, but it had to be special right :)

The reason that made me want to buy this spellbinder lacey ovals die is all the pretty lacing of ribbon I was seeing on blogs, and this is the first time I have actually done it.  The stamped flower is from Cloud nine design and I used Markers to color it. 
The paper is more from the Cardmaking and papercraft magazine freebie. On the kraft paper I embossed two lines on the top and bottom and on top added the stamped sentiment  from Hero Arts everyday sayings along with some bling stickers.
  The love sentiment stamp is from Fiskars.  Martha Stewart border punch.
