It Was A Beautiful Autumn Wedding . . .


Two years ago today, our son, Andrew, and daughter-in-law, Jami, were married in a very beautiful autumn ceremony. This is the anniversary card that I made especially for them...wishing the two of them a lifetime of love and happiness.

This card is a 5-1/2 x 5-1/2" square. For the base, I've used Stampin Up always artichoke cardstock and distressed it using the 'saran wrap technique'. The other colors of cardstock are really rust, marigold morning and cranberry crisp. I had to use 'really rust' because that was the color we used on their wedding invitations, programs and thank yous and I still have plenty of scraps left! :) The patterned paper is by Adornit ~ Carolee's Creations. These two are titled Fall Leaves Aswirl & Spice Vines. Please don't look too closely at my stitching as I'm just learning how to use my new Janome Sew Mini. I can tell that sewing corners will be a challenge for me, but I think I'll be really good at the crazy stitch look! :) The sentiment is a $1 Michaels stamp punched out with my Marvy Uchida mega circle, layered with the giga scalloped circle.

To the right is one of my favorite photos of Andy & Jami and their wedding party. If you would like to see more wedding pix, please visit Jami's blog, Crazy Daisy Creations and be sure to leave a comment to wish them a Happy Anniversary!
Smiles, Pam :)
