21 Years ago, January 12,1991, I married my husband, my best friend, and father of my 4 children, my partner and soul mate. This is the anniversary card that I made for him. It was made with a Mark's Finest Papers set that will be released this month called LOVE REMAINS. Love has remained with me and my husband and it has helped us through some really difficult years. I knew when I saw this set that I would use it for our anniversary card. The sentiment "Lean on me" was like it was made for me and my husband. We met in college, at a Wednesday night chapel service. One of the songs they sang that night was "Lean on me" there were motions where when the words "lean on me" were sung, you leaned back to back with the person next to you. Little did I know that night that I leaned on my future husband, that I would lean on him for a lot of things to come. I thought it was really cool when I saw that this week' Word Art Wednesday was about marriage. What better way to finish an anniversary card with this scripture:
Genesis 2:24. This explains why a man leaves his father and mother
and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.
Happy Anniversary Derek!!
I used the sketch challenge from SCS. I used paper tole technique on the rose. If you look really closely you will see little flecks of gold paint sprayed over the whole card. The little embellishments were orange to begin with and I didn't think they matched so I painted them with antique gold paint.
This is a close up of the paper tole rose.
