(What we were thinking - getting married 1 week before Christmas!!) Our anniversary has always had a very festive and "Christmasy" atmosphere!! When we had our wedding reception the room was decorated with poinsettias and a beautiful Christmas tree, courtesy of the hotel.
Here's the card I made for my DH using Papertrey Ink's Wreath for All Seasons.
I started with a white card base and stamped the wreath, then I added red Stickles for the berries. The lower portion of the card was then stamped with Text Style in Caramel ink and the edges were distressed with Vintage Tea Dye Duo. HAPPY anniversary from Mega Mixed Messages was stamped in cranberry ink on a caramel background and then mounted on cranberry card stock.
I wanted to add a little extra detail, so I used three rows of scalloped caramel card stock that had been stamped with Text Style and then sponged the edges using Cranberry Ink. I layered them under the wreath image to give a bit of dimension to the card. A cranberry ribbon and bow was added to the top of the scalloped grouping.

This will be a busy week for everyone. I'm almost finished my shopping - just a few things to pick up. I still have a lot of baking to do, but I enjoy the warmth of my kitchen and the smells of gingerbread this time of year!! My youngest son arrived home on the week-end and will be with us until the 28th, so life is very good.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
