House of Cards - Happy Anniversary


I hope you had a great weekend, and that your week is starting off well.  I dislike Monday's, but I've got quite a bit going on today, that it should go by quickly. 

Today is the next challenge at House of Cards.  This is the 5th week in the month, so it's a photo inspiration challenge, and you get to pick whichever style you like.  For all of the details, click HERE.  Check out the inspiration photo.

And here's what I created.

I needed a card for an anniversary coming up, so this is what I made.  I LOVE these crochet mats I bought from Jessi Fogan.  They are gorgeous!  I kept it simple, to focus on the sentiment panel.  I'm hoping it will make it through the mail ok, considering it's quite bulky.  I guess we'll see, huh? lol 

Anyway, I hope you'll head over to the House of Cards blog to see what has been posted.  Throughout the week, all of the DT's projects will be posted.  Lots of eye candy this week for you!

Have a wonderful day!

Oh my goodness, Steph - this is beautiful! Who wouldn't love it? In fact, I need a very special wedding card for the end of September, and what a lovely idea! Thanks for sharing, dear friend. Hope you are well!

Eek! I love it! I have a hard time making anniversary cards so I am definitely going to CASE this :)
As for making it through the mail - I find that when the layers are soft (as in no buttons) they do just fine. Fingers crossed!

Steph, I adore your use of the patterned paper--I have some of that and the way you highlighted just part of it is amazing!!! This is just beautiful! HUGS and hope you have a great rest of the week! :)

Hi Steph! This is a beautiful Anniversary card. I hope it makes it through the postal service undamaged too. Have a great day.

This card is gorgeous, Steph. The crocheted piece is perfect here.
