Happy Blogiversary to Annette!

Happy Blogiversary to Annette!
She is celebrating her 2 year Anniversary of having her blog ~ A Spoon Full of Sugar!

Welcome, if you are coming from Karen's blog:  if not you can start the hop at Annette's blog:  A Spoon Full of Sugar and hop on along!

So for my project I did an anniversary card for my parents who just celebrated their 62nd Wedding Anniversary!

For my card I used Canvas Corp Black and White polka dot paper ~ love it!

 Then I used A Jillian Vance Design's {die}vine Cross Combo Die set and stamped the cross background from the {die}vine Sympathy Stamp set ~ yes, from the sympathy one but I LOVE that swirly cross!  using Black Archival Ink.

The Anniversary Blessings is from Happy Anniversary Stamp set  stamped on a die cut from AJVD {die}namic Duo die set and then topped off with some Want 2 Scrap Black baby bling!

The sentiment on the Zipper strip at the bottom is also from Happy Anniversary Stamp set.  It was die cut using AJVD The Zipper {die}vice die and makes a perforated strip you can rip off to reveal a secret sentiment ~isn't that COOL!!!!  Open here stamp is from The Universal Zipper Stamp Set.  The heart border punch is from Martha Stewart.

The bells on the charm hanging from a AJVD Black Pear Pin is from Charming Occasions stamp set and white seam binding for the bow!

My parents love to eat out so I got them a gift card  to their favorite restaurant! (not shown in the photo) and put it in their {die}signer Pocket die cut also cut out of the Black and White polka dot paper.  Sentiment is also from  Happy Anniversary Stamp set .

The zipper strip thing is so cool! I also love how you put the heart border underneath the polka dot patterned paper. I would never have thought to do that to break up the card. Very creative!
