Happy Anniversary with the Minis.

Hello friends! I have an Anniversary card to share with you. I made it for Angie and her hubby.  :) Anytime I make her something I try to use the deeper rich colors she likes. I am thrilled with the way this came out! I tried a little something different with my sky, mixing some colors to create a different looking sunset. It's really pretty in real life.

I used these new flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts! I've found a new favorite, Sweetheart Blossoms! They are a little smaller than Cherry Blossoms. I LOVE them! These darker toned roses are Wild Orchid's new Classic Color Line, they are so pretty.

This is also my card for Just Magnolia and hAngler. Our theme this week is Buttons, Bows and Bling! I do hope you'll join us!

I have been super busy lately and enjoying every minute of it! I want to thank everyone for always leaving me the sweetest comments. Each and everyone one of them mean a great deal to me! I have a hard time getting around and leaving comments myself so it means a lot when you take a minute to leave me a note!

Hey Mindy!

This card looks almost as good on your blog as it does on my mantel! It truly is a lovely card. I wish you could all see it in person. The photos do not do it justice...then again...photos never really do, do they?

Thank you again Mindy :-)
