While it's not what you'd expect for an anniversary card challenge in that it's not a card for another couple, my 5 year anniversary is coming up and I wanted to be prepared before we leave for San Francisco and Napa to have a card that would knock MrP's socks off (in the simple, but beautiful way that I like to make his cards).
I kept the colors simple - black, kraft and cherry cobbler. This time, I used the Love Deepens sentiment, as well as the XOXO and heart from Love Notes. The sponging was actually Sahara Sand, but when I was too quick to get sponging, I managed to mix in the red, so I used kraft since it was closer to the color at that point. In this picture, however, it looks like I may be completely off my rocker for matching. Oh well!
Anyways, I hope he likes it, as it's the only one he's getting. Hopefully this will be given to him while we're enjoying a second visit to The French Laundry.
Funny story - in my mind, it's funny, anyways... I booked MrP his first massage on our next Friday off together and he calls to tell me I have to change the time - the restaurant opens at 10am and we'll have to be calling repeatedly in an attempt to get a reservation again. Seriously...you know you're food loving nerds when you reschedule a glorious reward like a massage so you can try to make reservations for your anniversary supper.
