JRC_012 Faith, Hope, Love

Happy Easter Everyone!!!  I hope you are all blessed with a wonderful day!!  Today's card could be reflected on as remembering the love Christ had for us as we celebrate Easter and although that IS true, I did actually make this for another special occasion.  Today, my grandparents who I love very much, celebrate their 68th Wedding Anniversary!!!!  Can you believe that - 68yrs - and they love each other as much today as they did then!!!  Here they are, 68yrs ago.....

I have also used this week's JustRite Stampers Challenge JRC_012 which is super dooper easy - anything goes!!!  Get out any of your JustRite Stamps and make something!!  :)  There is a $50 prize for the winner and $15 for honourable mentions!!!  :)

I decided to use green as a focal for this colour, mostly because that is my grandfather's favourite colour.  I started with a base of white, layered with green bazzill and more white embossed with Swiss Dots EF.  The next panel is gold layered with some green Memory Box Frond DSP.  In each corner I added some Vintage die cuts and topped with Kaisercraft Chino Pearls.  For my feature panel I used the border from 2" Square Decorative Frames and the sentiment from Loving Thoughts.  I matted this with gold and then another gold square en point.  I then added this to the Fleur de Lis Pendant die cut that was white and covered with Wheat Fields Glimmer Mist.

Stamps - Loving Thoughts, 2" Square Decorative Frames (JustRite)
Paper - White, Green Bazzill, Gold, Memory Box Frond DSP
Ink - Old Olive
Accessories - Fleur de Lis Pendant Spellbinders, Vintage die set, Swiss Dots EF, Kaisercraft Chino Pearls, Wheat Fields Glimmer Mist.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

Thank you for sharing your photo - I enjoyed it so much. My in-laws were married 70 years when my FIL passed away two years ago. I bet they are such a cute couple! I also like the card very much. I am sure they will as well. Blessings, Louise

Kathy, this a beautiful anniversary card. I love the way you have sprayed the die cut with Glimmer Mist. I think this pendant die is my favourite and will be the one I order first!

beautiful card, the gold is a great touch. I love that picture of your grandparents. That is so cool and congrats to them!

What a wonderful occasion to celebrate!! Wow!! Always warms my heart to hear of couples who have celebrated so many years together, especially in a society that discards marriage vows so easily. I'm sure they will love this fabulous card. Give them my congratulations and blessings!
