Anniversary Monogram

TGIF!! I'm ready for the weekend -- how about you? It's going to be a quiet one for me. Megan left yesterday to go to St. Louis with her Cross Country team, Kyle left today for Ashland, Kentucky with his Soccer team, and Chris is gone this weekend on retreat. It's just Anna and Caroline at home with me this weekend! I'll probably take them to a movie sometime tomorrow, but while they're playing with friends I'll be stamping! :)

I thought I'd share the card I made for my in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary last weekend. I wanted to do something simple and elegant, and I think I accomplished it! I used the JustRite Special Occasions Monogram Kit, and I stamped the image in SU! Basic Gray ink. I sponged some SU! Going Gray ink around the circle to add a little depth.

Here are the other products I used:

Paper: Ambrosia 6x6 pad (BasicGrey)
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug, Textile Texture embossing folder (Provo Craft), Lace Edge punch (Martha Stewart), white organza ribbon (SU!), adhesive rhinestones (Michaels)

Before I go today, I just wanted to leave a reminder for all of us to never forget...

Thanks so much for stopping by today -- have a fantastic Friday!
